Julie de Waroquier (France)

Julie’s pictures are a mixture of fantasizing, surrealism and conceptualism; inspired by fairy tales and dreams.

Beijing-based painter Mu Lei creates a dark and glossy world where women amassed with feathers reign. The surreal realm offers an unusual blend of dark, moody sensuality merged with video game aesthetics. It’s like the unlikely crossroads whereBlack Swan meets Galaga. The artist’s portfolio boasts a fairly monochromatic scheme with the occasional glimpse of red lips or a crimson blush for the leading ladies that star in his paintings.

The works are clearly inspired by flight, often equipping the subjects with piloting accessories like goggles or surrealistic wings.
