Their visual style reflects the following common to one another, one, and self-centered; Second, emphasize the virtual experience of virtual scene; Third, cold and cool and games. In order to restore the contemporary social and cultural reality of human beings, between human and nature, man and society.
Artist self-centered, the motif and will be dressed up as art itself should be traced back to the realism in the representative of fang lijun, yue minjun, focus on self image and processing has become the main current art of the era, funny and exaggerated deformation of the generation of superficial, boredom, depression, depression, hesitation and anxiety and despair of reality show incisively and vividly, there are still several questions and depth of meaning pattern, time and history has to be decided this generation to become so. And generation, the younger generation of artists, while also in around the “self” in narrative, but the self is not a lack of vitality of the false, but the real social reality in a true self, or a magnifying self, is a from macro narration to micro statement, self survival experience in carding daily in the visual experience of reality and the present, the self is more full of romantic, more wonderful, perfect, more idolization of remodeling.

In fact, in this generation’s way of thinking, is a false utopian spirit realm, where they can open the wings of the ideal, bold and unrestrained their passion, their thoughts, more can let enlarge their imagination, in the virtual landscape, they imagined myself omnipotent, gets, and their creation is not actually in song virtual aesthetic feeling of virtual reality as own duty, but in the real scene and the reality between concrete images, otherwise attempt to seek a judgment and thinking.
Third, cold and cool and games
Who says youth is not cruel, in fact the youth was cruel, cruel has been growing up with the youth, youth is fleeting, you want to hold, but always can’t catch it. Trance between, let a person ACTS born with nothing. Adolescent agitation, crazy, adventure, indulge in the narrative logic of young generation artists, has been replaced by easy humor and playful way. Psychological game with experience in their paintings, they abandoned the heavy fragments of the history of chewing, unload the ideal of a heavy burden, but there is no choice and pushed them into the digital age, mechanical copy and XuanLiang flashes and beautiful extremely luxurious consumption society, they meet the extreme materialistic, feel the diaphragm and the family of indifference. They followed the feeling, while flying in crazy and hand painted oil painting indulge themselves, and the cold and cool as they pursue, in order to express their feelings and youth life reality
