Description
Gu has never received or desired a formal academy training which, in part, enables him to break away from metaphysical questions of art and culture and to turn to a direct confrontation with his own nature. The primal emotional state is Gu's entry into his art making. In 10-30-1999, his installation named after the date of completion, Gu presents his unnerving and humorous look at the basic male/female relationship.
Artist Statement
I have Always been interested in people. Anyway, one is forced to find inspiration outside of art. There is nothing to discover in the realm of art itself.

Born in Beijing in 1962, Gu is a self-taught professional artist.
