The Chinese photographer Bing Luo’s photography exhibition BLOSSOM, hosted by the Asian Young Artists Association, was officially launched in La Brea, a famous art district in Los Angeles, on August 15.
Planned by Weihong Cai, the secretary general of The Asian Young Artists Association, the exhibition featured a selection of photographs created by Bing Luo during the epidemic on the subject of people and nature, as well as photographs that incorporate the concept of Eastern aesthetics.
The offline exhibition invited all of the creators of the photographs to recreate the shots, so that the guests could experience the photographer's creative concept up close.
Blossom includes three theme projects: “Kui Lam", “For Sun" and "Lethe". “Kui Lam" and "For Sun " are works in the Flower series, combining flowers and plants with people, reflecting a new sense of beauty. Bing Luo believes that "both people and every flower or plant are created by nature and belong to a part of nature. All beings are the same. They are created, reshaped, and what is created is reshaped once again. Plants, like people, flourish in spring, experience storms in summer, fall with frost in autumn, and return to earth in winter."
"Lethe" is about a spirit that comes to Earth by chance, and through different physical senses, stimulates her memories of Earth.
"Lethe" is the first set of new concept Chinese style modeling works created by Bing Luo and the plastic modelling artist Fengwan Qing who specializes in adding different traditional Chinese elements to her work. When Bing Luo saw the concept of "Lethe", he decided immediately to collaborate with her. The concept of Modern Chinoiserie is to combine traditional Chinese cultural elements with different contemporary art, with the main focus on integrating oriental aesthetic and cultural elements into different shapes and designs. Each look will have its own story as the background of the work, and different elements will be integrated, which will be the vital aspects of future Modern Chinoiserie modeling works.
Born in Shanghai, China and now living in Los Angeles, Bing Luo is now one of the most sought-after up-and-coming photographers in Hollywood, having worked with numerous magazines and brands around the world and standing out in the North American photography industry for his unique photography style. His series of photographs "Peeping Orchid" and "Towards the Sun" have been published by many magazines and media such as PAP Magazine, Vogue, Iconic Artist, ELEGANT Magazine, and more. His works have been recognized by the industry in both China and the United States.
The first day of the exhibition attracted many artists, including Georges Chamchoum, president of the Asian International Film Festival, Jean-Marc Vallee, director of Dallas Buyers Club, Tianyu Tam, musician and short video blogger, Una Wang, president of Sparklight Foundation, and others.
This photography exhibition is also the first art exhibition organized by the AYAA Asian Young Artists Association since the epidemic, and all proceeds from the sale of works online and offline will be donated to AYAA Asian Young Artists Association to help more young artists in Asia in the future.
