CHEN DONGFAN (b.1982, Shandong, China)

Dongfan Chen obtained his B.F.A. in Experimental Art from the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou in 2008. He currently lives and works in New York and Hangzhou. Chen’s work has continued to exhibit in the U.S.A. and China, and he has been actively participated in various public art projects in Hangzhou, China and Athens, Greece. His recent exhibitions include: Punk Bookstore, Square Peg Gallery, New York (2016); Child Wants to be a King not an Artist, Inna Art Space, Hangzhou  (2016). In April 2017, he presents his first solo exhibition You Know My Name, Not My Story at Fou Gallery, New York (2017).

Dongfan described his work as "not about dreams, but rather a kind of reality, a kind of memory, a mental world, the intersection between sensation and illusion, which requires time to find a way in." He is interested in how images are transmitted over time and what are the information and the sensations people received through transmission; nevertheless, he still pays special attention to the materialistic aspect of paintings, experimenting with the texture through layers of paint and welcoming diverse outcomes of it.

 

陈栋帆(b.1982, 中国山东)

陈栋帆2008年毕业于中国美术学院综合艺术系。他常在美国,中国,以及欧洲等地举办展览,并曾在中国杭州、希腊雅典进行大型户外公共艺术项目创作。近期展览包括:陈栋帆:朋克书店(Square Peg 画廊,纽约,2016),陈栋帆:国王的巡游(清影艺术空间,杭州,2015)等。2017年4月他在否画廊举办个展《陈栋帆:罗曼史》

陈栋帆曾形容自己的作品为“另一种现实,一种记忆,一个精神的世界,感觉和错觉的交织,而非梦境”,人们需要时间去寻找它的入口。他对图像的传播以及图像传递后所带来的信息与感官感受十分感兴趣;同时,作为一个以绘画为主要媒介创作的艺术家,他的关注点又难以脱离绘画本身,渴望在对画布的反复涂抹中获得新的感知。
