Chao Lu Artist Bio:

To live in China is to be part of a mass society even though dreams might appear remote and individual. There is no way of escaping the sense of being part of a crowd. I like to watch and depict live crowds; this allows me to observe myself and my life from another angle. Each time I look at a crowd, I see that everyone is different, unique, and at the same time so small and identical. I love crowds, I fear them and I am curious about the life of each member. When I observe and depict them, I wish I were a spectator; however, I am one of them and I can never escape that fact. It is like a game between people and themselves. Sometimes we can't recognize, which is a real world between real life and our mind. Our current environment is brimming with people's desires, and through my art I try to capture this restless, helpless and confused mass of people. Sometimes, it is a bittersweet pill to swallow. I try to draw every different face from my memory, so it like a collection form my mind. Every face for me tells a unique story, and to paint each face from my mind is more like watching different accident happens. I image every small figure is myself who trying to see found himself from watching different stories. I'm trying to build a world or a series of worlds in which panic and serenity are interchangeable, the faces are alive but they are hanging on the wall, the tiny people doesn't have any identity but they always try to find themselves.
