Lives and Works: Beijing, Shanghai
Liu Chao was born in Chengde, Hebei, China in 1987. In 2006 he graduated from the Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts with an MFA from the department of Oil Painting. He has since worked in Beijing and Shenyang as an artist.
As a young artist born in the 1980s, Liu Chao graduated from Luxun Academy of Fine Arts, in a system where painting is very important. In the learning process, Liu Chao has gradually established his own art language and formed the possibility of a variety of spaces in the spatial and plane dimensions.
In Liu Chao’s works, we can see the visual system of images formed in his painting, collage and the conversion of spatial dimension. In his works, the maintained awareness of “collage” is also the results of “discussion” of planarity painting. Through breaking the real space, the space consciousness turns from three dimensions into planes. The focus is no longer placed on the problems that should be considered in real scenes, e.g. light ray, ratio, perspective, etc., but on canvas, a plane two-dimensional space.
In addition, Liu Chao’s train of thought for creation extends beyond the canvas and a new visual system is formed by way of finished works and wall painting. In the process of being viewed, the visual re-combination of painting and space contributes the complete effects. Maybe, it is not accurate to conclude his works with visual illusion and his painting is more based on a discussion of spatiality. If we are stuck in a three-dimensional world, the existence of unobservable multidimensional space allows us to have infinite visual imagine, which is originated from the power of spirit and space of thinking. Liu Chao’s painting implies such a very strong consciousness, an expectation and imagine of a new world order and concept of universe.
