Nan Xu – 10 Art Competition
Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 10 Art Competition
My name is Nan Xu. I am an artist based in New York. After graduating from New York Academy of Art in 2017, I started to work as a professional artist. My works are shown in many galleries in New York and China too. This project I submitted is talking about the communication of the unknown energy between nature and human through the event of nature or civilization transformation in a magic-realistic world. I combine the sincere and vivid natural status of beings such as rocks and clouds with the discovery about the relationship between the seen world and the world inside myself. I like to use mix media of oil and pen and acrylic to create a language to describe the texture, space and light effect of materials to transfer both rational and romantic feeling of nature. I want to communicate with viewers about my thinking about the fate of humanity and nature through the historic views.
