 'Nostalgia, Waves' marks Du Jingze's first major solo show. It began with Du's fascination with the growing tension we experience today, between the simulation of reality and the reality of our state of conscious.      photo: Zak Milofsky

 In his work, there is a communicative effort to fuse multiple realities. The real and the surreal. The physical world, and the digital. With no particular destination in mind, Du creates images with the hope to extend the viewer's imaginative reading with their own independence.   Melding words and images, Du aims to generate a dialogue, discussing not only the figurative hints and representations, but pushing the painting into a hyperreality of multiple worlds. Thus, creating the feeling of freedom and individuality that Du brings to his personal aesthetic.     photo: Zak Milofsky

 Du Jingze was born in 1995 in Yantai, China. Trained in a traditional Soviet academic way from the age of 5, Du was taught to focus solely on figurative drawing. Since moving to Ireland in 2008, he quickly began to learn and absorb the Western methods of image making. In 2011, he appeared on RTE's The Late Late Show for wining a prize in the Texaco Children's Art Competition. In 2015, he became one of the five finalists of Ireland's Canon Young Fashion Photographer of The Year. Du is currently a 3rd year undergraduate student at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. He is expected to receive a BA in Fine Art Painting in 2017 before go on to further studies.     photo: Zak Milofsky
