FEATURED ARTIST: MA DEFANG - CHINA
Ma Defang (b.1989) recounts life stories through the ever-changing seasons. The four seasons are a symbolic representation of the four phases of life, with memories of childhood and old age represented by spring and winter respectively. This ecological occurrence demonstrates the subtle interconnectedness between nature and human life as it brings with it continuous change and the passage of time. In his work, Ma strives to capture a moment, evoke a feeling and instil a sense of place, by drawing on old photos and previous travels to inspire his work. Ma graduated from the Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts in 2014 and was the recipient of several art scholarships and awards. He has exhibited his work in select cities across China.
FEATURE ARTIST: SIMON MAAROUF
Developing into one of today’s brightest Pop artists, Simon Maarouf (b. 1985) draws much of his subject inspiration from iconic figures of pop culture. Often working in a hyperrealist style, Maarouf’s work is recognised by a dynamic use of contrasting colours and shapes, as well as distinctive faces, subjects and figures. Having grown up in Syria, the history and beauty of the old streets of Damascus were always a fascination. Now a resident in Dubai, Maarouf has found new avenues for exploration and opportunities for creative growth.
FEATURED ARTIST: SHAZIA IMRAN - AUSTRALIA
Shazia Imran is an Australian artist and sculptor known for her expressive mixed media pieces. She draws inspiration from her travels, exploring the infinite expressiveness of her subjects through watercolours, acrylics and mixed media. Her delicately multi-layered paintings explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and the interplay of light and dark, creating an atmosphere that opens itself up to multiple meanings. Born in Pakistan, Imran’s work has been exhibited throughout Australia as well as in New York and Florence. She is the 2015 winner of the Lorenzo il Magnifico Prize for mixed media at the Florence Biennale.
NOW AT FABRIK GALLERY
CURRENT EXHIBITION: “Reflections”17 March, 2017 - 30 April, 2017A joint exhibition by Pang Yongjie and Xu Songbo
Fabrik Gallery presents the works of two of China’s leading contemporary artists, Pang Yongjie and Xu Songbo. Drawing on the aesthetic of mid-eighth century Tang dynasty norms of beauty, Pang extols the female physique, its beauty expressed in the artist’s signature style of abstract forms. Xu revisits the Tang dynasty’s love of horsemanship, creating highly detailed compositions that capture the majesty of equestrianism across the plains of ancient Chang’an.
