Zeng Chao

Artist Concept In China, rapid economic and technological development has led to urbanization, and high-rise buildings and highways have transformed the urban landscape. However, the city’s gardens still retain a tradition known as “Kazan Stone”. Kazan stones are based on the natural stone features used in historical Chinese garden design, and have been used as a symbol of hope for a “return to nature”. In traditional Chinese culture, existence does not come from formation, but rather the beginning of formation is nothingness. Furthermore, the first being is called qi, and all other beings are born from qi. Ki is the material of formation, the force of formation, and its method determines its essence. The concept of fuzhi haden is deeply connected to the influential Chinese philosophers Zhuangzi and Laozi. Representatives of the philosophy of qi not only study the nature of nature based on the concept of metamorphosis, but also combine it with the concepts of metaphysics. However, Chinese politics, especially socialism, has been influenced by Western culture and dualism. For example, control of nature, conflicts between people and countries, those conflicts are easily created conflicts. According to the old Chinese philosophy, humans must respect nature as part of life in nature. To show the conflict between Chinese socialism, Chinese education and Chinese philosophy, Zeng Cho symbolizes Chinese socialism with his Chinese tunic suit and red tie, and Chinese tradition and philosophy with his Kaiseki cuisine. Awards 2013 Good Design Award 2014 CAF Award for Excellence, sponsored by the Nippon Foundation Foundation for the Promotion of Contemporary Arts 2014 Nominated, Sovereign Art Foundation of Hong Kong 2016 Research Grant, Kamibayashi International Student Scholarship Foundation Public Collection 2014 Yusaku Maezawa Collection, Foundation for the Promotion of Contemporary Art, Chairman of the Japan Foundation for the Promotion of Contemporary Art

Fabio Borges-

Artist Concept Fabio Borges’ artistic exploration explores the relationship between parts and the whole they form. It comes from observing the pixels in patchwork quilts, Portuguese tile panels, and digital images. His process begins on the computer before embodiment on canvas or paper. He uses acrylic paints and sprays over sublimation ink prints to create effects of transparency and opacity. Geometric shapes overlap with figurative images, transforming them into “watermarks. This is a subliminal message that raises the conflicting issues of inclusion and exclusion, preservation and extinction. Although there are many different subjects in his work, he does not take them as his own when he paints. He considers them to be devices that connect his personal experiences with those of the audience. By moving far away from his studio, his works are free to create new meanings. Fabio Borges’ paintings are in public and private collections in the United States, Brazil, Italy, France, and Portugal. Awards 2004 – Silver Medal Prize, Société Académique Française d’Arts, Paris, France 1990 – Won Prize, 2nd Goiás Art Biennial, Brazil
