“The surface of the airbrush painting seems to be the closest one I could find. It is smooth, the smoothest, blurry, the blurriest, yet has the highest definition on its surface all at the same time.” 

Gao Hang was born in 1991 in Baoding, China, lives and works in Houston, Texas. Hang received his bachelor's degree from Capital Normal University, China and his master's degree from Houston University. His carefully selected figures, whose almost geometrical shapes and proportions stand out from the background, reveal an irresistible realism that is in visual competition with the abstract.
