Artist, musician, collector, founder of A GOLDEN S△UL.
Boshan Zhou received his Bachelor of Engineering from Hunan University, China in 2011 and his Master of Fine Arts from Parsons The New School for Design, New York in 2013.
Artist is one of Boshan Zhou's identities for his dialogue with the world.
Boshan Zhou's work explores the motif of 'eternity' with 'endless flow' as its core. It involves theology, philosophy, and reflection on time, the human Status quo, and the future.
Boshan Zhou:"Eternity is not an abstract concept to me, but a concrete fact. Eternity is constantly flowing. Eternity is not in the future, but we are in it now. I live in the present, and I am also connected to eternity."
In terms of music, Boshan Zhou started learning guitar and composing songs at the age of 14; began to compose electronic music at the age of 17; from 18 to 20 years old, he served as lead singer and producer in several bands, including genres such as rock music, electronic music, hip-hop, and performed in many live houses.
In 2009, Boshan Zhou released his first solo album before the age of 20; in November 2010, Boshan Zhou released his second solo album "2 Sides", which was released in China (including Hong Kong), the United States, Japan, Australia, U.K, etc.
Boshan Zhou: "My music is the same as my artworks, which cannot be defined by a single style or genre. When I make music, I never pre-determine what genre of the song I would create, I just add elements of different genres to it, after a certain narrative and motivation."
Boshan Zhou continues to explore and try to break through the possibilities and boundaries of art and music.
"But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
- John 4:14
"Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."
- John 17:3
My work is a sensitive bomb with rationality as its core.
I am not a photographer, just some of my works use "photography" as a means to create. For me, photography is a means to capture time. After every moment captured in the present, it will no longer exist. Time is constantly passing, but photography captures the "present time" in eternity, which merges with my current exploration of the motif of "eternity".
I believe that artistic creation does not necessarily have to construct concepts first, although works that are driven by concepts and goals are often regarded as expressions of the artist's thoughts, and I also have works created according to this logic and process. However, I believe that art can also be an "unexpected encounter", a work created only by sensibility or inspiration, or even randomly created without any preconceived concepts, at the moment of completion, if the work has inspired and touched the artist, this inspiration and sensation will also become the concept and meaning of the work. Jackson Pollock's creations place more emphasis on the creative process than prior planning, and I place more emphasis on the extraction and interpretation of "unexpected" works when they are completed. Sometimes being naive of the "goal" allows me to react instinctively to the "outcome". I regard this method of creation as “proactively build unexpected”, giving life to the work first, and then through the form of dialogue with the work, when the definition and meaning are obtained between the artist and the work, the "unexpect" become the best "inevitability" of "one time, one meeting", and the work has become more vivid. Then I found that such an "unexpected" is not an occasionality, it is originally an "inevitability". I have never been an objective recorder, but a subjective capture and creator. I capture "unexpected" and write "inevitability". I think it's a pure sense of freedom. As Balzac said: "Art is nothing but touch." A successful sensation and interpretation give birth to a successful piece of work. When the work is presented in front of the audience, it is the beginning of the "second interpretation". The work stimulates the imagination and thinking of the audience, making the work connect with the audience. Each "second interpretation" of the work by each individual is a new connection, and these connections also make the work itself more vivid. Therefore, I also see my work as an "open conceptual" communication bridge.
