Using oil pastels as his main medium, Chen Guobao continues to focus on depicting the fragments that frequently appear in his life, such as receipts, food, landscapes, etc., and he always brands these objects with a strong personal presence. These "physical evidences" can help viewers to locate and narrate the work in time and space. Due to the directness and difficulty in operation of oil pastels as the painting medium, every time the artist paints, he needs to have a clear perception of color and exquisite control of composition. Using this difficult medium with ease, he presents his personal gaze and reflections on objects and memories in the superposition of brushstrokes.

Johannes Bosisio focuses on and depicts the details of machinery and substances of metal in broken forms.

At the same time, his study experience in London also gave him a wealth of inspiration, from cultural conflicts brought by different races to the cultural integration presented on social media, the coexistence and separation of the two diametrically opposed have become the nourishment of his thinking and creation. His field of study is wide-ranging, from the study of Natural Cyborg theory to the application of dystopian doctrines, and inspiration from books and literature has led the artist to explore and extend the relationship between the mechanical and the human.

Yu Feier’s research and creation focus on spiritual exploration and temperament extraction of objects. The combination of the aesthetics of traditional Chinese painting with the expression of Western painting brings a unique look to Yu Feier's artworks. The artist permeates the honeycomb cardboard with condensed and balanced textures in an overlay of brush strokes. Feier’s close-up subjects have a unique sharp aura, whether they are human limbs or partial objects, and her sense of detachment and position as a calm spectator make the paintings themselves have the possibility of being deconstructed in multiple ways. In this experiment about precision and intuition, the artist completes the process of dissecting herself through gazing, breathing, and feeling, and her creation also manifests the "spirit"（神）she has always contemplated and comprehended between the collision of nothingness and reality.
