|Beijing based collective Diao Dui unveils their latest creation: a large-scale mural painting covering the interior of Arrow Factory. For the last month, seven members of Diao Dui— CHEN Xinpeng, DONG Jing, LIANG Shuo, SHAO Kang, WANG Guangle, ZHANG Zhaohong, and ZHOU Yi —have been working on-site to produce a multi-themed mural that stretches across all three walls and the ceiling of Arrow Factory in a format reminiscent of Buddhist cave paintings. The eclectic subject matter and stylistic execution has been developed extemporaneously by each artist as they work on-site in shifts according to their own sporadic schedules. Minimal input and assistance has been provided by Arrow Factory.
Diao Dui is an informal artistic collective based in Beijing. Diao Dui’s activities embrace an attitude of self-directed recreation and leisure and include but are not limited the field of visual art.
