Interview Mr. Xinning Shi 石心宁
We had such a great honor to interview Mr. Shi, a world-renowned artist specialized in figurative paintings. Mr. Shi grew up in China, and currently lives in Southern California. His artwork were shown in many exhibitions both inside and outside of China. Influenced by painting styles of social realism and European, among others, Mr. Shi focused on painting iconic political or social moments with a twist by including subjects of Chinese Cultural Revolution, especially Mao Zedong, that were never actually in these historical moments.
In October, we asked Mr Shi a list of questions concerning his work, his thought process in artistic creation, and his advice to young aspiring artists. Mr. Shi patiently provided detailed responses and authorized us to show two of his art pieces on our website.
We are now gladly sharing with you the interview and his hand-picked paintings. Please enjoy!
