What are people's criteria for judging beauty? A beautiful face? A different existence? A feeling of pleasure? Or just follow what others say and make yourself feel the same way?

A woman with a slender body but an ugly face, do you think she is beautiful? A girl with a beautiful appearance but a heart like a scorpion, do you think she is beautiful? An ugly but kind-hearted girl, do you think she is beautiful?

What is it that blurs the eyes of human beings and makes people's judgments of beauty vary widely?

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.
