is a Chinese painter who is currently based in London.
Within his practice he’s interested in deconstructing the world we live in, de-familiarising it and making it absurd through the use of everyday objects.
By changing the inner logic of the visible world that surrounds us, and its relationship to the human body, he tries to intensify the psychological tension within the constructions of a painting. He positions figures in empty but enclosed spaces, the land of nowhere, in order to construct an internal narrative on the flat surface. In his works he tries to emanate silence, calmness, and infinity, an oddness that is known, yet unable to be described.
