About the Artist Ren Zhe
A pioneering young sculptor from China
Born in 1983, lives and works in Beijing. Graduated with both bachelor's and master's degrees from Tsinghua University in the Academy of Fine Arts Sculpture Department. Director of the Chinese sculpture Society, member of Chaoyang District CPPCC and Youth Culture Promotion Ambassador of Uganda-Art World Tour.
Ren Zhe is a pioneering young artist who, despite his young age, has a profound understanding of the illustrious history and culture of China, and also a global vision that enables him to embody the western and oriental culture, as well as traditional and modern aesthetics, into his works. His use of contemporary materials brings out the interplay between the contemporary artistic expressions and the quintessential values of traditional oriental philosophy in perfect harmony.
The unifying theme of Ren Zhe's works strives to convey an ageless aspiration, penned generations past, for a virtue that embraces the world and to ceaselessly enrich oneself. His works, in the drama of their stillness and their motions, have cast within them Ren Zhe's intensely humanistic aspirations, which allows us all to appreciate the timelessness of culture and art.
