Zhou Fan's Dream World

June 19, 2012
Chinese artist Zhou Fan's fantastical world is based on a series of dreams he had as a child. Fan's vivid recollection of these dreams crystallizes in a set of paintings where mushrooms, jellyfish tentacles and fish heads blossom from human forms in vibrant neons and pastels. "Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality," says Fan of his work. A native of the Shanxi province in Northern China, Fan graduated in 2006 from Shanxi University and has since shown in art exhibitions worldwide.
