Zhou Fan

I absolutely love these paintings by 25 year-old Chinese artist, Zhou Fan. Insanely inspiring...

"A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachures and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality." - Zhou Fan

His artist's statement is strangely relatable for me, and I love finding new artists to follow!
