Zhou Fan: Dream Paintings

zhou fan

I am utterly blown away by Zhou Fan, contemporary Chinese artist.

His is by far the best artist statement I’ve ever read:

A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachures and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality.
