Haimeng Cao is a freelance artist in Los Angeles. He graduated in ArtCenter College of Design, illustration major. His skills focus on concept design and visual development. The medium of the work is digital painting, rendering and modeling. He was influenced by several dystopian novels, especially 1984 and Brave New World, and the artists such as Mobius and Katsuhiro Otomo. The theme of his work is mainly about future city landscape design, the atmosphere and mood of the works otherwise indicate the totalitarian and formalized future societies. Every piece of work has unique camera angle and displays spectacular panorama of the city. Each city has different architecture styles and atmospheres. The story is established within those techniques.Read More Featured Artist – Haimeng Cao
I create “photos from different worlds” as I call them, and animated films. In my works I use photos, textures and paint a lot of fur and hair. Characters in my works don’t have names, and they are not animals, nor are they humans. They are what they are – different type of species from faraway. Every “photo” is provided with a very short story, sometimes just few words. It’s like as if you are walking down the street and some people are passing by, and for a brief moment you heard scraps of conversations and thoughts… the next moment they are gone. I love this feel of mystery and that something is left untold. I think there is a lot of freedom in open endings.
Sometimes when everyhting in life becomes overwhelming, I seek retreat, I seek shelter within myself. It is then, when it opens – a door, or a window… and I can catch a glimpse of something not connected to daily troubles. Some light, some shadows, something otherworldly. And if in that moment I am sensitive enough, these light and shadows can leave traces, they can transform, like in photography, into visual form, into images, into frozen moments of someone’s live and untold stories.
