Jun Chen

b. 1960

Jun Chen (b. 1960), based in Brisbane, Queensland, trained in traditional Chinese brush painting at Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, China. He migrated to Australia in 1990, and in due course completed his master’s in fine art at the Queensland University of Technology. Since the late 1990s he has exhibited regularly in Australia and Asia. He has become a regular finalist in the Sulman, Wynne and Archibald prizes; he was highly commended in the latter in 2017 for a portrait of the late art dealer Ray Hughes. Recognisable by their thickly applied paint and expressive, gestural quality, his oil paintings are held in public institutions including the collection of Parliament House, Canberra, and Guangzhou Art Gallery in China, and in private collections throughout Australia and abroad.
