People who have saved this event:



For the inaugural show at its new Wardour Street space, Unit London is proud to present RAW, an exhibition of recent works by leading Chinese contemporary artist, Zhuang Hong Yi.

With a celebrated career spanning nearly three decades, Zhuang Hong Yi has achieved international acclaim with works that explore his mixed cultural heritage. Born and raised in Sichuan, China and currently based in between his Rotterdam and Beijing studios, Yi has had over 30 international solo exhibitions and his work has been selected for important shows at major venues including the Found Museum Beijing, China; the Groninger Museum, The Netherlands; and in Venice, Italy in conjunction with the 55th Venice Biennale (2013).

Yi manipulates thousands of rice paper flowers, which he then combines with layers of oil and acrylic to create large-scale fields of petals on canvas that sing with colour. Meditations on nature and form; the bold, sculptural paintings fuse traditional Chinese artistic practices with a contemporary abstract aesthetic.
