Through processes of using Kodak C-print, he first chemically develops the black and white print onto photographic paper – this becomes the ‘base color’ – before final hand painting the final layers to complete it. Major exhibitions include: Every Skyscraper is Built from the Ground, the 2nd Changjiang International Photography and Video Biennale, Chongqing (2017) ; Don’t Shoot The Painter, Galleriad’ Arte Moderna Milano, Milan (2015); The Civil Power, Minsheng Art Museum, Beijing  (2015); The Bright Eye Of The Universe, Sundaram Tagore Gallery, New York (2015); Made in China, London (2013); 6th Chengdu Biennale, Chengdu (2013); ‘Pop Sensation’ from the UBS Art Collection, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Hong Kong (2012); China: Memories & Imagination, Albemarle Gallery, London (2011); Dimplom-Arbeiten Dortmund Photography Exhibition, Germany (2006).

    Wang Shang (b. 1984, Beijing) currently lives and works in Beijing. He graduated from Goldsmiths College and the Royal College of Art. Upon graduation, he qualified as a certified gemologist at the Gemological Institute of America, and began working in the gem industry. He founded his own brand, the eponymous S.H.A.N.G. Operating a jewellery brand, a process Wang Shang has likened to “doing life studies in the countryside” or “experiencing life”. This has allowed Wang Shang to touch on and understand jewels from two perspectives, being simultaneously a method of art-making and commercial activity. Gradually, Wang Shang has built up knowledge and experience as a merchant and designer of jewellery.
