Oil Painter: Liu RuiZhao
Graduated from Central Academy of Fine Arts.


Oil painter Liu RuiZhao captures bizarre life moments in dramatic lighting. Dressed in casual night-suits with hairstyles like an upside-down cooking pot, his figures in tedious life routines are dramatized and mystified, their adolescence hidden safely in darkness are suddenly exposed, gazing at viewers, shocked and dumfounded. There is heavy melancholy hidden behind. People in the paintings seem to be lost in their own thoughts, preoccupied with a state of loneliness. Liu 's images have a signature frozen atmosphere: riding on a wooden camel or holding a swimming ring, his youths seem to be magically conjured, frozen on the canvas, expecting something to happen. The artist effectively creates timeless illusions in his paintings.

Yet his youths are in a state of absent-mindedness, they cannot enjoy themselves; they seem to be awaiting someone absent, maybe a lost friend or something crucially significant; without which, the happy carrousel of life halt in time.
