    Details

    Shang Chengxiang is a contemporary fine artist, living and working in his home city of Shengyang, China. Chengxiang’s work draws on early surrealist movements, evoking the strange, unsettling imagery of Dali or Magritte, but brought up to date with incredible, high definition colour palettes, where billowing clouds of multicoloured pigment ooze across bizarre dreamscapes. ‘Magritte’s Cloud’ is reminiscent of the eponymous surrealist painter’s 1964 masterpiece The Son of Man, which depicts a suited businessman, his face obscured by a large green apple.

    Chengxiang has switched perspective, painting as if standing behind the same character, so that the face remains concealed. Around his head, Chengxiang has painted his characteristic clouds, laced with veinlike strands of bright colour, in a visual manifestation of dreaming, of having one’s ‘head in the clouds’, in the creative space of the unconscious.
