Guanshuai Mao
Born in Ningbo, China in 1993 and now his studio is based in Shanghai. Mao started to craft some wood figures or animals concretely in 2013. By going deeper into wood carving and chiseling, he wanted to explore more since 2017. Because of the unique and charming quality of wood material, as well as the characteristic folk art skills of wood sculpting, Mao tried to create more original and abstract forms, which cannot be directly found in the real world, in a freshly new way. He wants to sculpt the pure inner spirt of the subjects, subliming the distinctive style of wood sculpting. His work emphasizes the individual's spiritual expression, and the language of the work retains both originality and contemporary feeling. Exhibition experience includes:group exhibition “Speechless Waves” Cang Lang Ting in Suzhou,  group exhibition “Windy June” Shenzhen Art Museum in Shenzhen, group exhibition “ The Drawing Hand” Danysz Gallery in Shanghai, solo exhibition “Balance, Guanshuai Mao” Maoguanshuai studio in Hangzhou,  solo exhibition “Crossing” Yuanbai Exhibition Room in Hangzhou.

1993年出生于中国宁波,现居上海。2013年正式开始木雕创作,用一些木质边角料制作一些人形和动物造型。随着对材料和工艺的不断了解与深入,2017年开始尝试木雕更多的可能性。为了配合木材与众不同的迷人质感以及木雕独特的民艺性质,试图去创造一些更为纯粹,又能同时体现雕刻独特性与事物内在气韵的作品,毛冠帅开始在另一种思考与感知状态下去创作不能在现实世界中直接被找到的实体。其作品强调个体的精神性表达,作品语言既保留原始性又充满当代感。展览经历包括,苏州沧浪亭群展《无语看波澜》(2020)、深圳美术馆群展《六月风象》(2019)、 上海唐妮诗画廊群展《绘之手》(2019)、杭州个展《平衡感·毛冠帅》(2019)、杭州元白展厅《路口》(2018)。
