“Jiang Pengyi graduated from the Beijing Institute of Art and Design in 1999. He has been awarded the Aletti ArtVerona Prize for Photography in 2011, the Jury Grand Prize from the Société Générale Chinese Art Awards in 2010 and the Three Shadows Photography Award in 2008. Jiang was invited to participate in the Helsinki Photography Biennial 2012 and is nominated for the Prix Pictet 2012. Jiang now lives and works in Beijing and Hangzhou, China.
Jiang’s early works illuminate the rapid development of town planning and architecture in contemporary China as an alternate sampling of capitalization and globalization, and how it excludes and erases all elements of an ancient culture. The Unregistered City series reveals the illusory nature of the city and the world.” http://www.blindspotgallery.com/en/artists/2010/jiang-pengyi
