Ghostly Holographic Artwork


Using special colored pencils, Beijing-based Xia Xiaowan paints on 14 to 30 panes of glass to create ghostly holographic artwork.

Since his early drawings, he restlessly pushed the boundaries of Western traditional realistic painting. His big breakthrough came in 2003. By creating “spatial paintings,” Xiaowan broke through the two-dimensional plane and created three-dimensional artwork that essentially lives in mid-air.
