9th Beijing Biennale 2022

9th Beijing Biennale 2022

Beijing bound! My painting 18th April 2021 has been accepted into the 9th Beijing Biennale, scheduled for 2022. The Biennale is one of three exhibitions in China that I hope to include in my programme for next year. It’s not easy planning and showing remotely, but it seems my audience is slowly growing there. I had such an incredible time in China 2019, and can’t wait to return one day. Photo by Sait Akkirman in his Auckland studio.
