He Sen was born in 1968 in the Yunnan Province in China and studied at the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts. He is a Beijing-based internationally recognised artist whose work has entered major collections, including those of the National Art Museum of China, the Shanghai Art Museum, and the Deutsche Bank.
In his artistic research, He Sen blends compositions of the Chinese landscape painting tradition with contemporary elements conveying vibrancy and new perspectives. His artworks evoke a sense of musicality; they seem to follow a rhythm and a natural development of a lyrical composition.
He Sen has been exhibiting worldwide, including at the Today Art Museum (Beijing) Louisiana Museum (Copenhagen) and National Museum of Contemporary Art (Seoul).
