Zhou Fan

"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 was born in 1983 in Shanxi Province in northern China. He did art at Shanxi University and has shown his work throughout China as well as in New York, Cologne, Dubai and Bahrain.

Hopefully he comes to Australia soon too!
