My Days during the Coronavirus Lockdown
I stayed at home and my studio in Shanghai.What were you doing during the COVID-19 lockdown?A: 主要也是在创作，也和我的编曲老师阿峻一起做了一首新歌(还没录)。过年在家里的三个礼拜画了几副纸上的小画，然后就是在看剧了(差不多一天十几集)I have been working on some new works and writing a new song with Jun, my music arranger. I finished a few small drawings during the Chinese New Year, then I started watching TV series (about a dozen episodes a day).创作中的Nisky / Nisky in his creation process创作中的最新作品 / The latest work
What would you be doing if not for COVID-19?
A: 也是在创作吧。I would be drawing and painting as usual.
Any thoughts you want to share?
Does it affect or influence your current creations?
Maybe more inclined to explore the inner world, I guess. In fact, if we look back at the art world more than 100 years ago — before and after the First World War. Before the war, the entire art circle was full of ideas, and various fresh schools appeared. After the war, everyone returned to the tradition to seek some kind of comfort or shelter in the classics. This is quite enlightening for us to face and look forward to the trends and changes that may occur in the art world.
What lessons do you think we have learned from this Coronavirus outbreak?
Because of the lockdown, nature has rejuvenated — fresher air, clearer water, more active animals... However, we can foresee that when the pandemic is gradually controlled, the vitality of nature will disappear again after human activity goes back to its normal pace. Everyone is saying that humans should be more reflective and humble to coexist with nature, but how many of us can really do this?
Nisky作品手稿 / Manuscripts of Nisky
Do you think we are all equals?
Any particular situation that you think can fall into the category of discrimination?
Maybe relatively equal.俞杨1989年出生于上海，长期在绘画和音乐等领域进行创作与探索。Nisky是俞杨为自己创造的别名, 取自他最喜欢的两位电影大师Federico Fellini 和Krzysztof Kieslowski的名字结尾, 以此来表达对他们的敬意。Nisky的绘画作品源于其对美术、音乐、文学与电影的多元理解。“超拼贴”是Nisky近年来从创作体验中提炼出的一个新概念。“超拼贴”超越了拼贴的界限, 在重构原始材料的“语法结构”的基础上, 把不同范畴的两种材料整合成一个“更高层次的统一体”, 达到“完全的渗透”。艺术家选择具有“丰富的矛盾”的材料, 保留这种“争斗”来避免与传 统相互隔离, 让传统以此得到全新的生命力。自2012年，Nisky由杜梦堂(Galerie Dumonteil)代理。近年来其主要个展包括“幻视I&II” (2017)，“重影之景” (2014)，“环形迷宫” (2013)，“Multi-Nisky” (2011)等。艺术家的作品曾在PAD巴黎，PAD伦敦，Art021，艺览北京等国内外艺博会上展出，并被国内外众多藏家和机构收藏，其中包括一件上海新天地的永久陈列作品。Yu Yang (aka Nisky, b.1989, Shanghai) has always been exploring in both realms of painting and music. Nisky is an alias forged from the last letters of Federico Fellini and Krzysztof Kieslowski, as a homage to the artist’s favorite filmmakers.NISKY's works are the result of an ever-lasting cross-disciplinary interest in fine arts, music, literature, and cinema. “Metacollage” is a new concept evolved from the artist’s practice on paper and canvas — an attempt to “surpass the limits of collage” and to form a “superior unit” between painting and other art forms, based on the “syntactic structure” of different materials through a chain of chemical reactions, ultimately to attain “complete osmosis”. For this creative enterprise, the artist opts for materials that are rich in contradictions and struggles, thus revisiting traditions while moving forward.Since 2012, the artist has been represented by Galerie Dumonteil. Nisky’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions including Phosphenes I & II (2017), The Interlacement Landscape (2014), The Circular Maze (2013), Multi-Nisky (2011), etc. The artist has also participated in international art fairs such as PAD Paris, PAD London, Art021, and Jing Art Beijing, etc. And his work has been collected by both Chinese and international private collectors and corporations, among which includes a permanent display at Xintiandi, Shanghai.
To be honest, it depends on everyone's definition and understanding of "discrimination". Sometimes even a look, a sigh is enough to make people feel discriminated and offended.

They are offered in the form of music on demand for all viewers while visiting the exhibition. These creations include vocal, covering the style of pop, classical, rock, etc. After listening to these now somewhat "mysterious" works, everyone will have an idea of Nisky's unique understanding of pop music creation.Every visitor is welcome to ask our gallery staff to play one or a few songs on the list.

The lyrics of A Song for Baby tells a story about memory and eternity. The new "Four Pieces" configuration composed of harp, oboe, flute and cello makes the whole work more classical, while the string group continues to accumulate and push forward emotions, interacting with the singer's voice, as well as each musical instrument.
