Born in Zhejiang, China, Lin Ke (b. 1984)  is best known for his radical and highly experimental body of digital artworks. Using his laptop as a studio, Lin plunges into the vicissitudes of the internet, testing the limits of the software he employs. As a postmodernist, Lin deviates from strictly traditional artistic practices, rebelling against the phenomenological structures that have been reinforced by technology. Through doing so, he triumphantly reclaims cyberspace as a vast playground for Mankind’s edification.

Lin graduated from the New Media Arts Department of the China Academy of Art in 2008. Over the past decade, he has been producing and exhibiting his artworks across the globe, notably in Minsheng Art Museum Shanghai, Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea Museum Milan, Museum Folkwang Essen, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland and The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles. He also gained major critical acclaim by winning the OCAT – Pierre Huber Art Prize in 2014, and the Chinese Youth Artist Award of the 9th AAC Art 2015.  Currently based in Shanghai, China, he is a proud member of the Double Flay Art Centre.
