Lot description
"Skydiver No. 1" (2011) is one of the most visually and thematically exciting of the iconic "bird's eye view", figurative oil paintings by renowned Chinese Contemporary artist Zhou Jinhua. This large-scale painting measures 43.25 x 57 inches is a stunning example of the iconic paintings that define Zhou's oeuvre, that all share the artist's unique play with perspective, scale, color and surreal narratives. Zhou is most famous for this 'birds eye view' perspective that intentionally makes his paintings feel like an aerial photograph, and this unique 'remote' perspective and compositional manner immediately distances one emotionally from Zhou's intense and often riotous scenes as well as heightens the sense of voyeurism. As a young child the artist began climbing bridges and high rooftops to take photographs with his first camera and is also admittedly influenced by the “equal-angle see-through” (dengjiao toushi) perspective of traditional Chinese scroll painters.

The artist was born in Sichuan, China in 1978. In 2002 The artist received his painting degree from the elite Sichuan Institute of Fine Arts. The artist has had solo and group exhibitions in China, Taiwan, Germany, and his paintings have been exhibited in Museum shows throughout Europe and Asia, including his 2010 solo exhibition:"Zhou Jinhua", at Neuffer am Park Art Museum, Pirmasens, Germany, in 2009 a solo exhibition, "We Are All Fine, but.....", Kunstverein Konstanz Museum, Konstanz , Germany and the group exhibition in 2007: "Encountering Paintings·Works of 10 Artists", China Art Museum, Beijing, China amongst others. The artist presently lives and works in Beijing China.
