Art Projects Gallery proudly presents FAIRYLAND, a solo exhibition by Shanghai based artist, Zhang Guangyu. Guangyu first studied Fine Arts at the China Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China before completing his BFA from Central Saint Martin’s College of Arts and Design, London in 2012.

Trained in both the east and west, Guangyu’s works are manifestations of the artist’s exploration of the two cultures -­‐ oriental themes and aesthetics with a contemporary Western twist. Exclusive to Art Projects Gallery, the series of works featured in FAIRYLAND showcases mythical realms that blurs the boundaries of reality. The works express strong contrasting elements, such as the fusion of Western cultural elements with integration of classical and modern art, layered with references from Chinese classical art forms and details.

Exotic birds gaze across vibrant backgrounds, exploring rich vegetation and soft diffusions of bright hues. Tonal infusions drift across striking backgrounds, adding a dreamy element, almost like a splash of water-­‐colours. Intricate patterns pay attention to even the smallest of details, creating a contemporary juxtaposition of contrasting features and mystical creatures. Eastern landscapes evolve with poignant motifs and bold brushstrokes,unleashing the imagination to explore a new and untouched world.

FAIRYLAND exhibition runs from 12 May till 16 Jun at Art Projects Gallery. An opening reception with the artist present will be held on 12 May 4-­‐6pm.
