It was from here that he began working on his new abstract paintings. He produced a series of three paintings, ‘Break’, ‘Knots’ and ‘Existence’ – all of which reflected the uncertainty he faced in his new life in London. With the eventual reunion of Jin’s family and acceptance from the Western world, he continued to paint with power and emotion, developing a new series of paintings by creating figures from a variety of geometric surfaces and deep vibrant colour.

He was invited to exhibit his new version of paintings at Ningbo Art Museum together with other Chinese artists after twenty-five years in Britain. Meanwhile, Jin's new five large scales of painting which is involved in China Maritime Museum's permanent collection.
