Jia Juan Li

Oil on Linen

JIA Juan Li was born in Hangzhou, China in 1960 and is currently based in Paris, France. She graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1991 with a First Class Honour and her career has been filled with important accolades and milestones from receiving a French government scholarship to study at the Ecole d’Art d’Aix-en-Provence in France in 1996, to being the 2004 recipient of the prestigious Prix de L’auteurs dans les Arts Graphiques et Plastique in Monte Carlo, one of the top prizes offered to contemporary artists today. In 2008, Jia was invited to show her work at the Grand Palais in Paris, which was a very important and prestigious milestone for the artist. Museums throughout Asia have collected her work, and her private collectorship has expanded to almost every corner of the globe. In March 2011, Jia had an important solo retrospective exhibition at Today Art Museum in Beijing that further cemented her reputation in China. in 2013, Jia was chosen as one of the 40 artists to exhibit her paintings at the French International contemporary Art Fair (FIAC) on the Champs Elysees in Paris, as an event to mark the 50th anniversary of Sino-French diplomatic relations and promote China's cultural arts to the world. This touring exhibition later took place in the Guan Shanyue Art Museum in Shenzhen, the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) in Beijing and the Chongqing Art Museum in Chongqing, all held in 2014. The special, everlasting quality of Jia’s work is in her unique style. Having lived in France for more than a decade, she has developed her own style of combining the western oil painting technique with a strong Chinese element. Her paintings are based on her countless visits to the Forbidden City when she was growing up in Beijing, her knowledge of court life during the Qing dynasty, bedtime stories her mother used to tell her, and murals from the Dunhuang caves. By fusing the contemporary with the classic and the real with the imaginary, Jia recreates Chinese history and culture in the most memorable way, and her paintings are beautifully rendered in a mesmerizing and captivating style.
