20 Asian Artists In Their 20’s Spectacle

Zhiqing Yang and Naidi Jiang proudly present the 20 artists together sharing their very individual perspective of the self and the physical world.

“Artists in their 20’s graduating from institutions are at their growing season. Rooted in a similar culture and educated in a different environment, these young asian artists developed various paths of interests and expression. The world, either nature or urban landscape is the fertiliser, the young generation stretch their rhizome deeply and firmly into the ground and eagerly absorb for their flourishing. They are the generation of here and now.”

The 20 Asian artists from University Arts of London and Royal College of Arts together present their recent works.

Hebe Yang’s mix media work Collage Painting 2017 focuses on pure shape, form elements and techniques. Similarly, focused on the theme of ‘ruin’, the South Korean artist Won Young Chang’s painting Soft 2017 is of shape, shades and marks.

Some built the relation between their artistic selves and nature.

Angela Tonglet’s Atlantis 2017 closely binds to the very nature of the world, while Ning Jin’s Neglected Nature 2017 seeks for the signs of nature in an urban environment.

Others are very self-aware, and their work usually centres around the artist’s subjective perspective through their experience. Yunhan Chen’s Struggle of Quit Smoking 2017 is the mental self portrait of the artist’s struggle through the attempt to quit smoking.
