'I Saw Your Eyes'

 Sad looking dog in a barrel

Oil painting
190 x 130 cm

Seeing a stray dog is too common a thing. But this time, I suddenly felt that its eyes looked similar to most people’s in today’s society. On this dog’s face I found a human-like expression. I was astonished and thought to myself, “What is the difference between its suffering and ours?”


Liu Gang was born in 1979. He undertook studies in the Oil Painting Department at LuXun Academy of Fine Arts (Postgraduate Degree 2008). Included in the recent group exhibition 'Scenery' TART Art Group Shanghai.
