Shi Haozhong: Just Color

‘Very few artists are able to flawlessly combine the two vastly different styles of abstractism & realism together; one in terms of spirit, the other in execution.’ -Huang Du, renowned art critic

At first glance, these works by prominent upcoming art star Shi Haozhong appear to be thick paint wiped onto canvases’ surfaces… As you move closer, you will realise the ‘splotches’ of paint are incredible, hyperrealistic paintings. These Paintings of Paint are minimalistic in approach yet extremely skillful & expressive in form. They triumphantly combine an abstract idea with a realistic outcome, providing us a sense of spiritual elevation; a new understanding towards contemporary life.
