Zhou Fan is a painter exhibiting globally as one of the exciting new contemporary Chinese artists. His images are unmistakably Asian, from their subject matter to their colour palettes, his world is both surreal and fairytale like. I love the detail, the very Asian fish motifs and bizarreness of his scenes. The characters seem to be simultaneously suffering and detached from their reality, all very intriguing!
Fan often references his childhood when talking about his work, the paintings do indicate a fractured or distorted view of reality, where the imagined and the real co-exist as equal entities.
