Shen Liang says “painting is like an asylum” and that “vandalizing my own paintings relaxes me,” in reference to his practice of creating large-scale paintings based on imagery from the Cultural Revolution and defacing them with graffiti-like marks. Shen’s subjects have included the illustrations on top of children’s pencil box tins, advertisement posters, and the covers of propaganda pamphlets, rendered with distinctive photorealism in thick encaustic. Shen is a member of N12, a self-identified group of second-generation Cultural Revolution artists who graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, along with Yang Jing, Wang Guangle, Yang Yuanwei, and Qiu Xiaofei.
