Galerie Urs Meile Beijing is honoured to announce the opening of The Day is Yet Long from our up-and coming artist Chen Fei (*1983 in Hongtong, Shanxi, China). This is his first solo exhibition since he began working with Galerie Urs Meile. The exhibition will feature a series of works that the artist has created over the past few years. Chen Fei’s main creative media is painting, and he particularly loves a 'super flat' creative technique that is straightforward and clean. Under bright and beautiful colours and clean, almost mechanical lines, a simple visual disguise is created. With consistently strong narrative characteristics, disturbing emotions leak out. Chen Fei’s expertise is the choreography of the scene. Those scenes of daily life could not be any more common but, because of tedious detail and character arrangement, often bring out a compact tension and an unexpected sense of drama.
