Illusory Works of Ni Youyu in Space and Time

  • by The Cartellino Team

There are many questions that riddles the works of Chinese artist Ni Youyu in the exhibition The Last Sunset. The question of space and time continues to lace throughout his creations having you asked about many things like his age or the age of his works, whether or not it is contemporary, or even the concept that revolves around it. But the artist doesn't mind all these questions and in fact, would love to keep people asking. The spatial and temporal illusions that these works present are much more than just that of a concept to him but results of a process that takes him years to go through and that what makes his creations one of a kind in its own right.
