Gao Hang (高航), born in 1991, is a Chinese contemporary artist. Now living and working in Houston, USA.
Hang understands digital graphics as 21st century “found objects”. He is interested in the ones that are exposing a certain rawness, oddity, or awkwardness. From the last 20 years he has been inspired by the fact that graphical spectaculars could end up representing rawness and ridicule in the digital image evolution. However, it is that rawness and ridicule that triggers the same creative impulse with what the painting process can offer; providing surprise, a shifting attitude, or something more extreme. Gao Hang strives for his practice to simulate a modern production method, but with a high fault tolerance.
