Barlo Blossoms a Head in Shenzhen with “Jardin Orange” and CEET

We talked to the Italian painter Barlo back in June when he was upside down in his current hometown of Hong Kong and now we see he is in Shenzhen with Ceet and the newly created Jardin Orange Art Residency.

His two-story headless figure drew plenty of stares as he hand painted for two days in a rapidly developing neighborhood full of new construction.

“For me it was a chance to continue my recent exploration regarding Chinese patterns and traditional objects but most importantly to try to paint completely freestyle using only an extension pole,” he tells us. “Surely the influence of some Taoist readings I have been doing lately is quite evident – both in the subject and in the choice of going freestyle with a technique that doesn’t allow a high level of detail.”
