In 2000, Wu Junyong first graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking at the prestigious China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. In 2005, he obtained a Master of Fine Arts from the New Media Arts Department newly founded and directed by Zhang Peili, considered as the « Father of Chinese Video Art ». Since 2005, Wu Junyong is an instructor at the Mixed Media Department of China Academy of Art.
Wu Junyong has created his own surrealist universe, partly inspired by Flemish renaissance painting. The artist, fascinated from the outset by the art of video animation, constructs his world through other mediums including painting, drawing and installation art. His artworks narrate stories with the help of symbols taken from both oriental and Western myths and legends.
Wu Junyong has held several solo exhibitions in Greater China including: one at ifa gallery (Shanghai) in 2010 and one in the USA. He recently participated at an exhibition at the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands, the Asia Pacific Triennial Cinema Retrospective in Australia, the Shadows Chinese Independent Cinema festival in France, the 9th Shanghai Biennale and several other exhibitions.
Wu Junyong lives in Hangzhou (China).
