生于1978年,2001年毕业于湖北美术学院,现工作生活于武汉。他的创作媒介是多样化的,从绘画到装置都有涉及。艺术家一直致力于在社会干涉和体裁进步方面建立自己的道路,将油画材料与老式的前社会主义式的现实主义绘画风格结合在一起。近年来龚剑的作品由更多的趣味性转向探讨更富有深度与真实性的学术性倾向,在某种混乱和粗糙的美学中揭示出现实的力量。

Gong Jian, born in 1978 and educated in Hubei, currently lives and works in Wuhan. Works in a diverse range of media from painting to installation and always willing to forge his own path in terms of stylistic development and social intervention, Gong Jian well-developed his blending of oil materials with the older graphic styles of pre-socialist realism folk painting. Recently, he has moved towards less playful and more academically informed experiments with discourses of depth and authenticity, revealing the power of reality in some raw and ragged aesthetics.
