Hou Zichao

Hou Zichao (b.1988, China) explores his act of painting as a medium between society and nature, which is transformed into the landscape of artificial behavior and human behaviors.

With a multi-media approach, his artistic media range from painting to installation. Hou’s works focus on the conflicts between human beings and nature in contemporary cultural context, utilizing diverse visual languages to emphasize the distance between artificial landscape and nature, as well as the rupture between constructed scenery and real life.

Hou received a BA Honors degree from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in 2013, and Master’s degree form Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2014.
