Liu Fei born in 1964 in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province.
Paints bald young women that comment on the interplay of conformity and self-expression. Their means of dress and lack of hair are very much in line with one another, yet their rebellious gestures and exaggerated facial expressions speak of a desire to turn convention on its head. Red smiling mouths jump out from an otherwise black-and-white monochrome palette, thus seeming to ridicule the country’s traditional female virtues like purity, delicacy and grace.
