Min Ren

Born in 1979 in Ningxia, China, graduated from the College of Fine Arts at Ningxia University in 2002, and earned a master's degree in oil painting from the College of Fine Arts at Shanghai University in 2008. She is a member of the Shanghai Artists Association and the China Artists Association, as well as the Deputy Director of the Shanghai Yanhuang Painting and Calligraphy Art Research Institute. She is a professional painter.

Min's works are primarily focused on landscapes, characterized by pure colors and a strong sense of form, with a tranquil and distant atmosphere. Beneath the simple and beautiful imagery, there is a revelation of an inner need for nature and a longing for a pure spiritual state. Since 2007, she has emerged from the group of young painters, with her works appearing in various national art exhibitions and winning numerous awards. In 2013, her work won the Excellence Award at the National Oil Painting Exhibition and the Shanghai Municipal Party Committee's Outstanding Artistic Creation Achievement Award. Her work was twice selected for the National Jinling Top 100 Oil Paintings Exhibition, and in 2016, she was selected for the National Oil Painting Society's "Visible Poetry" Oil Painting Exhibition, among others. In recent years, many of her paintings have been collected by domestic art museums, art foundations, and private collectors.
