Current Artists in Residence

JINGZE DU

The RHA School is delighted to welcome Jingze Du to the RHA Studio Programme 2020. Jingze Du was born in Yantai, China in 1995. At the age of thirteen he
moved to Ireland with his family. He studied at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and at the Royal College of Art in London. His degree show piece Images/ Refletsdans l’eau was awarded the National University of Ireland Art and Design Prize in 2017.

Jingze Du works primarily with painting and photography. His work addresses power, digital cultures and the fast-paced nature of present- day capitalism. Drawing from both eastern and western influences, the Chinese-Irish artist observes contemporary society, contrasting fragments of its dynamics and noise.
