Chinese artist Ai Jing is having her solo exhibition at the Marlborough Gallery in New York.

Titled Love, the exhibition is the latest edition of the artist's touring exhibition, I Love Ai Jing, which has been held at National Museum of China in Beijing in 2012, the National Art Museum of Shanghai in 2014 and at the Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan in 2015.

Kicked off on Nov 16, the exhibition will continue through Dec 30, featuring Ai's artworks, such as the installation, My Mom and My Hometown, I Love Heavy Metal, as well as much as 20 new works from her major series, I Love Color, and works from her latest series Walking in the Sun, which are being displayed for the first time.

Born in Shenyang, Liaoning province in Northeast China, the artist rose to prominence in the 1990s as a singer-songwriter. Her debut album, My 1997, sold more than 200,000 copies within one month of its release in 1993. Her second album, Once Upon a Time on Yanfen Street, was another success, which brought her recognition outside the Chinese mainland, including in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan.

She first went to New York in 1997 to seek inspiration for the album Made in China, and she wrote most of the songs for that album while living there.

In 1999, she began her painting studies with contemporary artist Zhang Xiaogang, eventually devoting herself to visual art. It was in 2007 that the artist began to show her paintings.
