Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Yuting (Tino) Xu –
Art makes different meanings in different periods, today for me Contemporary Art it’s a way to critique the Human condition and let the audience think about their own situation.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration? What are you currently working on?
YX –
The photos taken during my travels in Europe; the photos I saw on social media take help from academic research on contemporary culture. Currently, my work is focused on how the way we see the world today has changed compared to the way people did in the past, And what will this perceptual change bring to our future?

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
YX –
In the aftermath of the information explosion, today we face the exact opposite situation than those of the past, Today we have to avoid getting lost in the message, which for me is the most difficult but also the most important thing, like selecting and sorting out a creative thread in the complex information.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
YX –
What’s happening right now and some historical content, obviously, in a country as old as Italy, history is everywhere. So some time with a postmodernist approach, I soften the present and history in one work and I am always grateful to the scholars who worked quietly in the university, and it is under the guidance of their theories that I was able to gain a deeper perspective on the contemporary culture.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the exhibition’s theme?
YX –
This time it’s no theme exhibition, and I am very happy to see different art styles and exchange ideas with artists from around the world.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
YX –
Sure, with my art I trying to perspective contemporary society from a Postmodernist point. For example, in “BORING” wants to express that
maybe we are enjoying false freedom where we feel free to peruse any information we want, but it takes away the thinking ability of humans and makes every day like copy and paste.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP? Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
YX –
I hope ITSLIQUID GROUP will get always better and offer more opportunities for artists to be shown in the international arena. The exhibition space is great, and the curators have done a great job of integrating different artists into one exhibition through a unique approach.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
YX –
Sure, I very much suggest the collaboration with ITSLIQUID GROUP, The organization of the exhibition and the online publicity for the artists were both great.
