Tie Ying, who lives and works in Beijing, China, is a classical trained painter. He graduated from the oil painting department of the renowned Beijing Central Academy of Art and later studied at the Royal University of Fine Art Stockholm, Sweden where he commenced creating works by using photography as a main tool to articulate his artistic expressions. After two years of studies, Tie Ying returned from Sweden to Beijing in 1999. The cultural shock from a life of Scandinavian tranquillity and streamlined landscape to an ever-changing face and pace in the capital of China has compelled him to create a large amount of photography works to capture the glimpse and the split second of the encyclopedic modern Chinese society, which also serves as semi autobiographical documentations.
