The western most Chinese painters

In the half-light of the Haussmann-era living room, a few paintings stand out on the lava dust grey walls… Classical compositions on a chiaroscuro background, smooth surfaces, refined executions, which could easily be mistaken for copies of past masters, impeccably rendered. Until you notice that each and every character is Chinese. This is how Yin Xin - a dandy raised on the outskirts of the Gobi desert, who now counts Alain Delon among his neighbours - operates his cultural revolution. In a gesture which is part passionate tribute, part ruthless hi-jacking, he literally translates the whole of Western art history.
