Shi Xinning (b. 1969) trained in China. Shi Xinning’s paintings are influenced by both social realism and European styles. Xinning portrays his scenes with a high level of detail, which gives his pictures a photorealistic appearance. He also uses very subtle brushwork, which helps support his illusion that his paintings are historical photos.
