本科毕业于广州美术学院油画系第五工作室,研究生毕业于美国马里兰艺术学院。他也是啾小组的创始人之一。

目前工作于中国深圳和巴布亚新几内亚首都莫尔兹比港。他的作品探讨种族主义与社会阶层。他通过研究社会新闻与时事政治,利用不同的身份像变色龙一样灵活圆滑地穿梭社会的各个阶层,以敏感的触觉,吸收和消化人们在迁徙生活中带来的智慧与欲望。他常用多种艺术语言探索城市生活的纠结与意义,勇敢地在左右倒置的现实中,寻找特殊群体在全球经济与民族主义的影响下是如何被定义的,并成为今天重要的社会裂痕。

 

Fang Di is a Chinese artist who is currently working for a state-owned enterprise in Shenzhen, China and Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. His work discusses racism and social hierarchy through studies on news and political affairs. By switching in between identities like a chameleon, he moves smoothly among different social classes, absorbing and resolving people’s desire and wisdom gained through migration with his sensitivity. He often uses various artistic languages to explore the entanglement and meaning of urban life, and bravely discovers how special groups are defined under globalization and nationalism in the inverted reality, which has become an inevitable social fracture today.
