I am an artist working and living in Paris. I was born in Inner Mongolia, China. Graduated from University of Dalian in 2008, I work predominantly in the medium of painting but also engravings and sculpture. I have had solo exhibitions in Dalian at Tianyi Gallery, and had participated several group exhibitions in China. I live and work in Paris since 2009. And then I fell in love with this city. After learning and thinking a lot of my paintings and the contemporary art, I decided to create this new series of painting which is completely different from what I did before. I called this series “ COLOR ”.
Here is my site: http://www.minghaodong.com/
The series of paintings is created from a transformation of an image into irregular pieces (fragments), by dividing the picture into the different areas. Then I cover the areas with different colors so that they lose their original relationships. These colorful irregular fragments automatically compose a new drawing in the brain of the viewer.
It is a reflection of pondering on the properties of life, death and human, in a time characterized by impatience, fragments, nihility, and a duality of highly developed civilization and disorder.
In 25 November 2014, I will exhibit one big painting of 120cm x 120cm in the Salon “ Art en Capital”, in the Grand Palais, the exhibition end in 30 November. I will post the photos when the exhibition begin in my site.
