Shang Chengxiang is a contemporary fine artist, living and working in his home city of Shengyang, China. Chengxiang’s work draws on early surrealist movements, evoking the strange, unsettling imagery of Dali or Magritte, but brought up to date with incredible, high definition colour palettes, where billowing clouds of multicoloured pigment ooze across bizarre dreamscapes. His work depicts a certain sense of loneliness: if his paintings are ever populated, Chengxiang always obscures the faces of his figures, hiding their heads in colourful vapours or depicting off-kilter angles. Often these landscapes portray theatres of the unconscious, strange scenes of impossible realities, which capture the imagination with compelling and psychedelic intensity. Chengxiang’s work can be seen across galleries in China, where he has been exhibited in a number of solo and group shows.
