Lin Jin Fu, aka Jeff Lin, graduated from the Department of Painting, Qinghua University in 2006, with a degree in oil painting. He studied under the tutelage of Chen Dan Qing and Xin Dong Wang, and is an active member of the 80’s Art Group. He uses live models (especially male ones) for sketches which would materialize as full size paintings later on. The formally posed and rendered male nude figures are infused with elements of classical European paintings quite rare in contemporary art these days.
