Super Mario is a very typical computer game. The difference today is the students now playing senior levels. The result is many of them do not care about relationships between family members, and friends, except the games. They may know a little mathematics, but know nothing about the traditional culture, because they do not care about it at all, all they care is how to make high scores in the games they play! They are totally lost in the direction of life!
Jia Yuanhua is a Chinese artist, born in 1980, who lives and works in Beijing, China. His contemporary artworks focus on social issues such as the protection of historical buildings, the inheritance of traditional culture, the conflict between tradition and contemporary times, education reform and the sustainable development of the natural ecological environment. Characterised with a naïve art style, common motifs in his works include famous landmarks, pandas and iconic characters. He works mainly with oil or acrylic in his paintings, playing with two main forms of expression in his works. One is a common realistic technique known for paintings. The other is to use an oil painting knife for carving on the surface of the oil onto the canvas but the artist also creates lines in his artworks to express the outline of objects either existed or vanished. Jia Yuanhua’s works were on view on several exhibitions and art fairs in Asia and overseas, such as the Art Zone Exhibition Space 798 in Beijing, the Today Art Museum in Beijing, the Bangkok Chinese Culture Center in Thailand and the Contemporary Art Fair in Luxembourg.
