Migrant Bird Space & MO-Industries
A “Limited Time Offer” refers to a special set of items available for a defined short period of time only.
From this fleeting concept, artist & illustrator Ruohan Wang developed her second solo-exhibition for Migrant Bird Space Berlin.
Presenting her daily reflections over the course of the past year, her paintings, prints and digital works relate to a temporary sense of losing control over real life and Ruohan’s
personal phantasms as an artist.
Flashy colours & bizarre cartoonish characters in absurd environments convey a humour and playfulness that belie her work’s underlying conceptual bias. Ruohan’s oftentimes gloomy, dystopian vision translates aspects of Surrealism, Dada, even Art Brut, into a contemporary anarchic visual language.
Her signature style is based in a clean, straight-forward RGB scheme solely, unfolding its full potential in blazing large-scale images and funky GIFs. As Ruohan continues to receive broad international acclaim, we are honoured to present her newest work in a loud, eye-watering display.
