Lin Aojie, born in Guangzhou in 1986, graduated from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, Oil Painting Department in 2010. He lives in Guangzhou and currently works in Beijing and Shanghai.

Presented through video, photography, painting, text, etc., Lin Aojie’s artistic practice departs from his personal experiences. The artist has a keen and delicate record of the trivial details of daily life or deliberately planned events with strongly improvisatory and humorous images, while a seemingly dispassionate tone threads the whole narrative structure. By beating around the bush he tries to question, ridicule and criticize the capitalist mode of production, artist's survival predicament and the relationship between artists and other art professionals.
