This young artist was born in 1986 in Gansu Province and graduated in Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied Animation Design and constantly cultivate his love for oil painting. In Liu Guangguang’s paintings, cartoon elements have been transformed from a frenzy market mark into an expression of emotions that’s prevalent and unspeakable; and this is where the charm of his work lies. In the interview made during Dun Gallery opening event, Liu Guang Guang declared that he always paints people he met and situations he lived, and that his paintings are deeply influenced by images and feelings coming from his everyday life. Although he has been influenced by the cartoon style, his paintings are free from the visual violence typical of this style and the artist has developed a style of his own. In the three pieces exhibited this time - ‘Can you take me with you’, ‘The boy under light’, ‘Bird-man in the curtain of night’, Liu Guangguang described two different worlds: one is a youthful and lost world; the other is a surreal world. In less than a month, Liu Guang Guang’s paintings exhibited during Dun Gallery’s “Reflect – Focus” have already been sold, but the gallery has also other paintings of the artists on its catalogue. Dun Gallery exhibition will last until September 6th and it is a unique occasion to see the paintings of this young artist in Beijing. 刘光光 - 后卡通时代 刘光光是顿画廊首展“聚焦——映射”中最年轻的艺术家。他1986年出生于甘肃，毕业于鲁迅美术学院卡通设计系，在这期间，他坚持不懈的追求着他至 爱的油画。 在刘光光的绘画作品中，卡通元素从狂热的市场符号塑造变化为一种无处不在的、欲说还休的情感诉求，这也正是他的绘画动人之处。在顿画廊的开幕 访谈中，刘光光表示他的绘画深深受到日常生活中所见所感的影响，经常画他见过的人和他生活中的环境，虽然刘光光的绘画受卡通风格的影响，但没 有包含直观视觉上的卡通造型，而是一种极具个体性的艺术语言，是自然的流露。在本次展览中呈现的《你能带我走吗？》、《灯下人》、《夜幕鸟人 》三副作品中，刘光光的画笔描绘了两个不同的世界，一个青春迷惘的世界，一个超现实的世界。 刘光光在画廊的首展“聚焦——映射”中展出的作品在不到一个月的时间里就已全部卖出，不过，画廊内部还有他其他的作品。这次展览将会持续到九 月六号，欢迎大家光顾。 Dun Gallery’s first art related event On Thursday June 18th, 2009 Dun Gallery has hosted the first of its art related event “Stories behind the paintings” an introduction to modern and contemporary Chinese oil painting.
