Born in 1965 in Dangshan, Anhui, and graduated in 1988 from the Stage Design Department of the Shanghai Theatre Academy, Xue Song is a contemporary Chinese artist, who’s style of collage is characterized by the burning ready-made images and his rearrangement of the burnt fragments on the canvas. This symbolic destruction and rebirth or deconstruction and reconstruction underline the significance of his artistic practice, as well as fashions a brand new visuality.
