Chen Pai’an, born in Guangzhou, China, 1988. Graduated from sculpture department of Guangzhou Academy Of Fine Arts in 2013, currently based in Guangzhou. Chen always works with digital image editing, literature, digital drawing and video. His experience of working for an advertisement company, a decoration company and a fast fashion company makes him realize symbiotic relationships among well-promoted product, perfect-rendering commercial advertisement and deluded consumer. His humorous visual language and logic brings his works a very special sense of story-telling to represent symbiotic relationships.

Wong Wing Sang, born in Dongguan, China, 1990. He was moved to Hong Kong with father at the age of 4 and graduated from Ng Wo Kindergarten. He got the Cheung's Fine Arts Award in 2013, while he was studying Fine Arts in CUHK. His artworks were exhibited in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland China. His artistic creation focuses on the composition of contemporary society, as well as the unspoken rules and the personal subsistence state in it. He currently tries to use ready-made objects and images to build metaphors, exploring the subtle emotions and gray zone beyond everyday language.

Wu Sibo, born in Maoming, China, 1976. Moved to Guangzhou in 1994. He was graduated from Guangzhou Academy of Fine arts in 2005 and keeps creating paintings since 2005. The content of his paintings is the record of his past memories of living experience. From 1970s to 21st century, Chinese society has been changed constantly, according to the respect of the evolution of Chinese authority. Wu’s paintings and memories demonstrate the thread of the conversions of Chinese policy’s authorities. The authorities originate from the alternations rooted in government leaders, political parties, economy, class, occupational positions, family, and so on and so forth. In his gray-tone paintings, Wu Sibo as a resigned observer represent an isolated society in Guangdong China.
