Yu Guochan Chinese, b. 1993

Guochan is an aesthete whose practice is concerned with superficial qualities of beauty and uselessness of art, focusing on the purely decorative aspects of his work. His aim is to create a sensation of temporality, where the viewer's experience of the work is held  at the surface, creating a sense of honesty that refuses the "deceptive metaphysics of modernism" and false social ideologies and public philosophies.
