About the artist
Rong-Gen Yin, originally from Shanghai, began painting in the traditional Chinese manner in the 1970s.
During the 80s Rong-Gen was a member of an artist collective and had occasions to tutor in Japan and Germany. Having come to Northern Ireland in 2003, Rong-Gen has continued to paint and teach. Since 2015 he has been tutoring Chinese painting techniques in the Chinese Resource Centre in Belfast. Following his successful inaugural exhibition in the Crescent, the Armagh County Museum and the North Down Museum early this year, Rong-Gen will run his watercolour course again in the Crescent tutoring both traditional and contemporary styles of Chinese painting.
Following a successful year of exhibiting his work in The Crescent and a tour of regional museums, Rong-Gen is also holding a masterclass for both beginners and those with some experience of Chinese painting and will be assisted by his student, Anna Lo.
