Founded in 2016, Jardin Orange has been the first artist residency program of Shenzhen. It aims to promote the development of contemporary art in the region and enables each artist that comes to grow and develop further their style. Within the residency itself, it presents the drawings, sculptures, paintings and murals made by each of its artists.
The residency encourages all artists to experiment with their talents so that they may incorporate a foreign “touch" to their aesthetics, as well as blend and collaborate with the others that work alongside them. It is Jardin Orange’s mission to make original art beautify life. It is equally important to demonstrate how the East and West can blend together.
Jardin Orange provides each resident artist with living accommodations, studio space, art materials and a living stipend during their stay. It encourages each visiting artist to engage in a deep personal stylistic exploration of their work, while giving them the autonomy and independence for their individual work process. Within the last 2 years, Jardin Orange has hosted nearly 50 artists from over 10 countries, including also multiple Chinese artists, in order to foment a deeper relationship between the local regional artist community and the foreign artists that arrive.
During and after the stay of each artist, each piece of unique and excellent work produced is published and promoted exclusively by the Jardin Orange Artist Residency along a myriad of channels, including large exhibitions and private events. As an already well-known organization, Jardin Orange constantly strives to demonstrate a high-quality and professional representation of every resident artist and their works. It boasts of a solid promotional team which meets the highest quality expectations for every client it works with.
