Zhao Yanan and Zheng Qiaosi

赵亚男 & 郑巧思

When Zhao Yanan and Zheng Qiaosi were still students, many of their art pieces were already selected for exhibitions and won prestige awards. Upon obtaining their bachelor degree in Oil Painting, Zhao Yanan said, “The world is beautiful or corrupted because of life. On the one hand, you have girls like flowers, on the other hand, there are aeroplanes, bombs, warfare which bring about contradictory sentiment and unbridled imagination.”

The art duo’s extremely detailed and highly complexed work reflects the loss, suppression and hope. Zhao Yanan said, “In today’s world, we are independent, looking forward to the future and love; yet perhaps, destined to be lonely.”

Zhao Yanan and Zheng Qiaosi are playing the roles of an emotional poet.
