Andante (2020)

About the artwork

This piece for Sevendots is an expressionism combining photography and sketches. The visual realism and patchwork bring in a broader space and possibilities for association.

WU Nianqiu has introduced green plants with a woven net to reinterpret Sevendots’ logo into a non-linear visual expression, challenging its two-dimension original design. This creation pays tribute to limitless courage and bravery which are anchored in beliefs and convictions, enabling breaking the codes and emancipating from hurdles and chaos.

With a special approach to colors, he says “When different colors collide with each other, it creates a poetic nuance of cloudy color, and unpredictable lines at the boundary.” Says WU Nianqiu
