    About:
    born in 1989 in Henan Province, currently lives and works in Shanghai. Mo’s works are often based on realistic context, and from it extracts his understanding towards the objective world. His practice involves video, installation, painting, offering multiple metaphors to daily landscapes, and providing viewers with a new text for interpretation. In 2020, Mo turned to the practice of painting language.

    Mo Shaolong 's paintings depict the interaction between the metallic materials of digital images and the indeterminate faces. They seem to occupy the three-dimensional space but are subordinate to the digital landscape. He explains that he uses digital technology to help him approach the paintings again, as the former constitute a new fact of contemporary art. Mo Shaolong hopes that the viewer will be as surprised as he is when looking at these metal faces that have been stretched, torn, and dragged at will. This wonder is the result of three inseparable parts. Firstly, the subtle brightness of these unmemorable metals, the trace of brushstrokes left on the colors, and the depth of plasticity based on the first two. I call this kind of image in my works "digital flesh." Like Mo Shaolong's aesthetic predecessor, Francis Bacon, he tries to manipulate the violence of an image. More specifically, he sees the violence of a digital image and responds to it in the form of painting.
