Chinese artist Tianzhuo Chen has recently launched his first solo exhibition at Palais de Tokyo, Paris

With a theatrical performance, over 5000 visitors attended the opening of the exhibition, Chen’s first solo show outside China. A collaboration between K11 Art Foundation, a charitable organisation based in Hong Kong whose aim is to showcase emerging artists from the region, and Palais de Tokyo, one of Europe’s leading contemporary art forces, both groups share the same vision to bring new artists to the world.

Chen’s work is both bold and whimsical, revolving around symbolism and rituals and including his personal beliefs towards morality. Not bound by one medium, he works through painting, sculpture, video, installation and performance to provide a three-dimensional experience for the viewer. The works are generally very vibrant in colour and are often related to LGBT, hip-hop, the London rave scene, Japanese butoh and New York voguing.
