This young painter has a big show up at Gagosian Gallery in NYC. His work is apocalyptic …sometimes subtly. The icy blue color feels lonely and stark. Sometimes there’s a sci-fi feeling of being on another plane/. Many of these paintings are truly huge- the size of a billboard. He lives in Beijing and also maintains a studio in NY.

“There’s a moment in every post-apocalyptic sci-fi story when the main character realizes that his or her world—left ruined by a devastating disease or some nuclear tragedy—will never be the same again.”
