Yu Aijun's first exhibition in Japan, "Golden Black" will be held at Shun Art Gallary Tokyo

The third exhibition of Shun Art Gallery Tokyo will be the first solo exhibition in Japan by artist Yu Ai-jun, who lives in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China.  Yu is an artist who expresses various expressions such as paintings, installations, videos, and writing. He is also a prolific artist and produces various series of works. In this solo exhibition,  his artworks will be exhibited in installation, which brings the most out of Yu's artwork's richness and diversity.



For a long time, I have used paintings, videos, installations and other media to focus on the many problems and conflicts between individuals and collectives in reality, to expand political commentary and media imagination, and often use “sketching” as a consciously updated experimental path. The exhibitions are mostly in the form of projects to promote the progress or evolution of the current stage of work.
