Yu Aijun’s works are usually implemented as "intermediates" and (animation) video for graffiti, action, painting and installation to explore the connection between "form" and the world as the source of form. As for painting, more often, Yu treats the integrity of "painting" as a tool for use or intervention, rather than the (traditional) once-and-for-all style safely operated within the category of drawing. Yu has, therefore, always tried to mix graffiti, drawings, and poetry, and even "real estate" to a wide area, in order to realize the "nothingness" under the self-consistent logic and the equal rights expression and freedom of thought of contemporary art. Yu thinks his works are "about the emotional scene of eternal restraint rather than visual presentation", and "about moments rather than eternity". Therefore, Yu has become increasingly interested in transforming those "socialist market forms" into works of painting or other media in a "low-tech" way. They are a paradoxical combination of autobiography and politics, boredom and fear, drama and secular desolation. In this process, the unknown brought by action (painting) often makes the clues become the leading role in weak control. Yu calls this "mysterious action".

 

Yu Aijun was born in China in 1971. Currently, he lives and works in Shenyang, China.
