✦ Big names in creative play✦
Research and transformation of contemporary painting/installation/cultural symbols
Han Shaoguang has been engaged in contemporary art creation for more than twenty years, constantly oscillating between abstraction and representation, and wandering between the light and dark sides of culture. He is not bound by a specific style. Through painting and installations, he seeks the most authentic voice deep within himself. His art lies in discovering expression in graffiti, absurdity in harmony, strangeness in familiarity, and order in freedom. With abundant ideological space, his works have captivating symbolism. He not only uses images and mediums in his creations, but also presents them in a diverse manner enabled by the freedom of thought. His folk consciousness exists in a self-sufficient state of artistic vitality.
