Liang Ban

Liang Ban was born in Guangxi, China in 1985. He currently lives and works in Beijing, China. 


Liang Ban’s creative practice draws from human civilization and fictional mythologies. By connecting the essences of universal consciousness to individual or socio-political tragedies, he elucidates the deeper implications of modern events.
