Born in Quan Zhou, China in 1981, Chen Chunmu uses washes of diluted dark coloured paint and ink to give his paintings a fluidity and translucency that correspond to their ambiguous dreamlike identities. Chen paints absurd structures with his fluid painting technique, to demonstrate the parallels between reality and imagination, which informs audiences of his unique visual world.
