is a visual artist and graphic designer based in Chicago and Shanghai. By utilizing printed matter, photography, video, and installation, his work celebrates the “trash aesthetics” born from Chinese low cultural phenomena. With the methodology of appropriation, collage, and building ironic narrative, his work critiques the fetishism manifested in such low culture, which involves broader discussion of consumerism, technology, tradition, and politics. He received his MFA in visual communication from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

夏诚安1995年出生于上海,2018年本科毕业于华东师范大学,2020年硕士毕业于芝加哥艺术学院,现工作、生活于上海。利用印刷品、摄影、视频、装置等媒介,他的实践关注当代中国语境下文化符号的形成以及其背后的文化现象。他通过挪用、拼贴与建立讽刺叙事的方式解构视觉符号并重现符号的创造,并借由此展开对消费主义、科技、传统、政治等更大议题的探讨。他的作品曾在没顶画廊、乔空间、宝龙美术馆、上海当代艺术博物馆、厦门三影堂摄影艺术中心、奥地利电子艺术节、Mana Contemporary 等多家国内外艺术空间放映或展出。
