Welcome To Zhou Fan’s Chaotic, Multicolored World Of Jellyfish, Mushrooms & More
Zhou Fan spends many hours carefully painting the details and tiny lines that compose his subjects. He was inspired by his childhood; while Zhou has always had a strong fascination for jellyfish, his love of Medusozoa came from dreams that he had as a young boy of many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground as parachutes and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on the artist and his approach to his artwork.
Zhou Fan is a rising star in the Chinese art world – he is young, yet he is an extremely creative, Chinese contemporary artist. His paintings have attracted attention at exhibitions in New York, Germany and Shanghai. A major theme that strikes people when they view Zhou Fan‘s work is how his paintings are so colourful and detailed.
While Zhou Fan’s paintings may at first look happy and cheerful because they are colourful, many of the artist’s works have a sad undertone to them. Zhou seems to be quite sensitive to the fact that people can be cruel and destructive, and he can see the effect China’s societal changes are having on individuals and society as a whole.
Zhou Fan likes to combine the impossible, and while it looks beautiful within the paintings, the results can be confusing and seemingly chaotic.
