2 - 30 May 2009. Yang Shaobin is a Chinese painter and sculptor who lives in Beijing. In 1999 he burst onto the international art scene at the Venice Biennale where he showed his trademark blood-red paintings. Berlin art critic Sebastian Preuss wrote of them: '...suddenly these paintings were spellbinding, and all else was forgotten. First, it was a shock to the eyes, but then increasingly an attack on the soul.' Shaobin continues to concentrate on his primary painterly concerns, namely violence and destruction, with 'Silence' focusing on two seperate themes - the attacker and the attacked.

Alexander Ochs founded his gallery in 1997 with the intention of representing East Asian artists in Europe, with special attention given to Chinese Contemporary art.
