These 6 artists are representative of those born in the 1970’s, heavily influenced by collective concepts. Their intense feelings are poured into an outlet that uses their quite personal experiences to remind us of our common feelings: ego and the loneliness that always accompanies us. Face to face with the complicated world, they are making a great contribution to Chinese contemporary art.
These artists are sharing their own feelings with us, and they express their hearts through their hands. It is a rational awakening of self-consciousness. One who doesn’t know himself, directly face his own feelings or express what he needs, cannot be independent. There is a tacit cooperation between life and art—only independent individuality can create independent art—and this is the most important step of self-awakening for Chinese contemporary art.
They are Wu Di, Wu Haizhou, Jiang Huajun, Wei Yan, Tian Tian and Song Chen.
