bio quoted from LostAtEMinor.com

Unlike most artists, whose work I’ve discovered online, I first saw Zhang Xiao Bai’s art in person, at the 2015 MCM Comic Con. She had a lovely display in the centre of the hall, separate from the artist ally, so it was only by chance that I found her. She came across as such a sweet person, and as you can see, her art is beautiful.

Unlike most of my Inspirational Artists, whose work I discovered online, I first saw Zhang Xiao Bai’s art in person, at the 2015 MCM Comic Con. She had a lovely display in the centre of the hall, separate from the artist ally, so it was only by chance that I found her. She had so many prints to look at, I was like a kid in a candy store! Thirty minutes later I purchased a print and told her how much I loved her work. She came across as such a sweet person, and as you can see from the photos, her art is beautiful.

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb title=”HOW HER ART MAKES ME FEEL” admin_label=”HER artmakes me feelBlurb” _builder_version=”3.0.87″ background_color=”#6bcde8″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” text_orientation=”center” background_layout=”dark” custom_padding=”20px|20px|20px|20px” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

I feel incredibly positive and filled with hope when viewing Zhang Xiao Bai’s art. These females all seem confident, at ease and totally content. I love the sense of reminiscing I feel, it intrigues and makes me want to know more about these girls and what they’ve been through. The sense of motion Zhang Xiao Bai creates is incredible, and a feeling I love. It really helps make the females feel alive, as if they’ve been captured for a moment in time.

It’s the one just above this text, the girl with the red stockings on. This is the painting I purchased at Comic Con. It has a vibe I love. I can almost feel her hair blowing in the wind as she peacefully reminisces. So beautiful!

As I often find myself saying after studying my favourite artists work, I’m struggle to pinpoint the words to describe how they make me feel. I maybe can’t describe it, but it feels good and that’s all that matters. What I’ve learnt from studying her work, is that I’m not only drawn to pastel colours, but also muted shades. Looking back at Ilya Kuvshinov’s art, I can see now that there is a theme developing. Muted tones seem to connect with me.

I also realised I love movement in my art, again, looking back at another of my favourite artists, Sergio Lopez, I see movement is one of the keys themes I highlighted. Like Sergio, Zhang Xiao Bai captures movement beautifully. I love this as it pulls me in, and allows my mind to start imagining the scene, really bringing the characters to life.

I find her art to be intensely emotional. I’m always left feeling positive, no matter the mood, even if the characters appear to be hurt, lonely or vulnerable, I still feel incredibly positive and hopeful for them. These females all radiate a confidence and contentment that’s made studying Zhang Xiao Bai’s art a real joy.
