Hello Yvette,Thank you for the great photos.There are some 40 listed artist with the last name of SHIN, so it took a while to look through them all for style and signature matches.The result is that this artist was not a listed artist but a regional artist that did not become high in the echelon of collectible art. The name Shin is of South Korean origin in most cases and a few Japanese share this last name. The images in the art could really be from either country. These paintings are acrylic on canvas and not oil. Acrylic is a plastic polymer that has more of a sheen when it is dried and does not blend into other strokes like oil paint does.This set of four scenic Asian paintings, created within the past 30 years, have a current value of $225.00 as a set of four.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
