ISZAF (International Shenzhen Artist Forum)

International Shenzhen Artist Forum or ISZAF is an independent, foreign, and local artist run artist society based in Shenzhen, China.

Founded in October 2016 by a group of visual arts professionals, the organization hopes to connect visual artists and professionals of all backgrounds, styles, and disciplines within the Pearl River Delta Region of China.

ISZAF desires to establish a community of visual artists that can network with fellow peers, establish more ways to engage the community through sponsored artist events, and promote healthy economic growth of artists through local galleries and show.

深圳国际艺术论坛ISZAF是一个独立机构,由国际及本地艺术家运营组织,总部设立于深圳。由一群视觉艺术专业人士于2016年10月成立,致力于与珠江三角洲地区的视觉艺术家和及所有其他背景、风格的专业人士合作。

ISZAF希望建立一个视觉艺术家的社区,可以与同行建立合作,通过赞助艺术家活动建立更多社会团体,并通过与当地的画廊和展会合作来促进艺术家的经济增长

Artist Rationale: I was once told by a fortune teller that I have lived many past lives in China and that I am carrying an old Chinese man on my back.  Happiness won’t come to me until I find a way to get rid of him. That may or may not be true – but there surely is truth in the fact that I am fatally inspired by Chinese art, and iconography.  In my current works, I do like a story.  And I am obsessed with my zodiac animals and how they live as robots in a world of monstrous dripping flowers. I like to experiment with ideas and mediums, using traditional paintbrushes and techniques to deconstruct my ideas.  I use gold in my work because it inspires me with its power to elevate my ideas as the light changes through the day.
