About the artwork

The trail of blind figures being led by a leader whose vision is concealed is a motif that Deng Cheng Wen has repeated throughout his 'Blind Walking' series. They represent a lost generation of Chinese youth who trudge forward slowly into an ambiguous future. A protective reflex borne from the desire to escape reality and judgment, they never attempt to pry the hands of their compatriots away and take a look at the world around them.

About the artist

In 1981, Deng Cheng Wen was born in Guangdong Province, China. He graduated from Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts in 2006 and his works have been exhibited worldwide in places such as Hong Kong, Beijing and Miami. Deng Cheng Wen's "Blind Walking" series captures the collective ambition, ignorance and emotional flurry within the young Chinese of his generation. His works adopt a concept-based approach in order to seek a depth and complexity, at a level that causes some of its viewers to recognize personal truths while standing before the art.
