The Artist

Shanghai-based artist Chris Rayn explores urban transformation, the perennial change of nature and existential questions of the individual in one of the world's fastest-moving metropolises. While drawing from the canvas of nature in authentic motives, his visual language is renowned for meticulous compositions, deep contrasts and rich colors.
