About the artwork

Through the assemblage of various photographic fragments captured in his hometown and in Africa, Shankun Wu reconstitutes a dreamlike landscape that combines everyday objects and childhood memories in unusual ways. The photographer, deliberately ignoring ratios of proportion and rules of perspective, gives rise to a set of multifarious forms in bright colours that are mixed together as though in a dream and create absurd situations. The quirky and childish world of his art likens it to that of naïve painting, in particular the work of Le Douanier Rousseau, with which it shares a stylised imaginary exoticism and the effect of density provoked by the juxtaposition of shapes and colours, lending an almost pictorial touch to his compositions.

The artist

Born in 1989, Shankun Wu was born in Guangzhou, a megalopolis on the Pearl River located in southern China. After studying cinema at the Beijing Normal University from 2008 to 2012, he perfected his training by completing a masters in photography at the renowned London College of Communication. Immediately after graduation, he dedicated himself to this artistic practice as an independent photographer.  ... See more See less
