Wu Xiaoshen
 
 
Wu Xiaoshen represents a group of artists of 70s in Shanghai. Lucky Goddess has always been with him from the day when he begun his journey of Art. Since 1999, his work could be found in a series of influential exhibitions hosted in Shanghai. And now, he becomes one of the first-rate of New Shanghai Art Group. The important thing is that he stays humble and calm, never flaunt. This is very rare.
 
For his work, he is not only doing oil painting, but also wood cutting. He always works on them together. In addition, the two kinds of work, wood cutting and oil painting influence each other, so the concept remains same. I personally positioned his style of work as the New Concrete Expressionism.
 
Wu Xiaoshen's subjects are always very close to the daily life. Those scenes, stories, the characters were all there at his side, which were inconspicuous, bit by bit, petty trivial broken. However, through his subjective perspective (relatively straightforward, casual) moderate alienation, exaggeration, distortion, purification and integration, the artist's work has become great scenes. Wu Xiaoshen's work always contains a bit of humor, a bit ridicule; somewhat intellectual, somewhat along with the unique; a bit strange, somewhat true; somewhat rigorous, somewhat easy. It is quite fun to watch them been blended together.
