Boshan Zhou is a multi-faceted creative with a diverse range of talents, including being an artist, musician, collector, and founder of A GOLDEN S△UL. He received his Bachelor of Engineering from Hunan University, China in 2011 and his Master of Fine Arts from Parsons The New School for Design, New York in 2013.
As an artist, Boshan Zhou uses his work as a means of dialogue with the world. His art explores the theme of 'eternity,' with 'endless flow' as its core. His pieces are influenced by theology, philosophy, and his reflections on time, the human condition, and the future. According to Boshan Zhou, "Eternity is not an abstract concept to me, but a concrete fact. Eternity is constantly flowing. Eternity is not in the future, but we are in it now. I live in the present, and I am also connected to eternity."
Boshan Zhou's passion for music began at an early age. He started learning guitar and composing songs at the age of 14 and later went on to compose electronic music. In his late teens, Boshan Zhou was a lead singer and producer in several bands, spanning genres such as rock, electronic, and hip-hop, and performed in numerous live shows.
In 2009, Boshan Zhou released his first solo album before the age of 20. He followed up with his second solo album, "2 Sides," in November 2010, which was released in multiple countries, including China (including Hong Kong), the United States, Japan, Australia, and the UK.
Boshan Zhou's approach to music mirrors his approach to art: he does not limit himself to a specific style or genre. Rather, he incorporates elements from different genres into his work, guided by his narrative and motivations. Boshan Zhou continues to push the boundaries of art and music as he explores new possibilities.
"But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
- John 4:14
"Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."
- John 17:3
My work is a fusion of sensibility and rationality, creating a thought-provoking impact.
While I do incorporate photography in some of my pieces, I don't consider myself a photographer. Rather, I view photography as a tool to capture the fleeting nature of time. By capturing the present moment, photography can preserve it for eternity, and this concept ties in with my exploration of the theme of "eternity."
Artistic creation need not always stem from preconceived concepts or goals. While works that do tend to reflect the artist's thoughts and ideas, I also believe that art can arise from unexpected encounters, inspiration, or even chance occurrences. I focus on interpreting and extracting meaning from these "unexpected" creations. By allowing the work to take on a life of its own, I am able to react instinctively to its outcome, rather than trying to manipulate it to fit a specific goal or concept. This approach, which I call "proactively building the unexpected," results in works that are alive and vibrant, and their meaning emerges organically as a result of the artist's dialogue with the work.
I don't see myself as an objective recorder, but rather a subjective capturer and creator. I capture the "unexpected" and transcribe it into a meaningful "inevitability." This process provides a pure sense of creative freedom, as Balzac noted, "Art is nothing but touch." A successful interpretation of a work creates a successful piece of art. When the work is presented to an audience, it opens up a new dimension of "second interpretation." Each individual interpretation is a unique connection, which enhances the vibrancy of the work, transforming it into an "open conceptual" communication bridge.
