Through his creative process, Shen Han attempts to find the relation between painting and body, focusing on an openess of forms building-up a connection between the material and perception through the action of painting.

His works do not have a planned subject or object, but initiate from the gesture, constructing an abstract pictorial plane through basic elements such as colour and line. While working on his painting, Shen Han also has the brain react with the images and colours that randomly appear through beholding, connecting the brain’s special memory of images, hence to depict and explore the human subconscious.

Shen Han was born 1988 in Hangzhou, China. He graduated from Berlin University of the Arts in 2017 with a Masterclass degree in Fine Arts. He was exchanging student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, he now lives and works between Berlin and Hangzhou.

Present lives and works in Berlin.
