Hailing from Wuhan, eastern China’s most populous city, DALeast is an artist who attempts to depict the tense relationship between the natural and artificial, the organic and synthetic, forming a bifurcated aesthetic which brings these seemingly irreconcilable binaries into a quite beautiful coalescence. Inspired as much by the internal immateriality of dreams and emotions as by the external physicality of material and form then, DALeast’s skeletal, spiraled images attempt to bring his part-animal part-machines to life, endowing them with an emotion and spirit which surpasses their purely illustrative qualities.
