Justin Rui Han

b. 1999

Justin Rui Han (b.1999, Rochester, New York) lives and works in New York, USA. In 2022, Han graduated with a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design, USA, and a BA in Archaeology from Brown University, USA. His paintings are imagined spaces that touch on the circulation of cultural capital, whether through trade or conquest, by way of land, sea, or survival in time. The compositions each attempt to invent new communities from existing pictorial residues. He assembles their components from film stills, direct observation, and archival sources.

Recent exhibitions include The Lafayette Rendezvous: Contingents and Convergences, RAINRAIN Gallery, New York City (2023); Eccentric Spaces, The Artist Room, London (2023); Would That: Expressions of Possibility…, Providence Public Library; Arecibo: Missed Connections, RISD Memorial Hall Gallery; and Residual Hauntings, Gelman Gallery, RISD Museum (all in Providence, Rhode Island, USA, 2022).
