Images of urban life have remained a potent source of inspiration for artists and writers. In this exhibition titled “tang pi” (sugar skin), New York-based painter Sihan Zhang attempts to use the language of painting to express the sugar skinned realities of our time, and gives them color and form, trying to make an emotional response to ways millennials speaks and dreams in today’s societies.
Xiaohan Wu (born 2000, Shanghai) is a New York-based contemporary artist who is currently pursuing a B.A in painting at Parsons School of Design. In her painting, Sihan emphasizes the expressive tension between brushstrokes, colors, and forms along with other elements.
