Dreamscape Paintings By Zhou Fan

Contemporary Chinese artist Zhou Fan's fantastical paintings make me jealous that my dreams don't look like this! Does it remind anybody else of Spirited Away?

A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachutes and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality.

Zhou Fan is a rising star and is attracting some good attention - watch this space...
