Xiaopeng Liu is a Chinese visual artist using photography as his main tool. His monochrome images are tranquil responses to the urban landscapes that represent his perception of the ever-sustaining self-existence and unstoppable passage of time.
For three years, Xiaopeng has spent long periods of time observing the urban environment by himself. He gently discovers the details that are unknown in these places and notices his own emotional changes. Using his personal experience on urban views, he looks for a balanced state which allows him to better understand more about his own growth and existence.

Xiaopeng’s photographs are usually hand-printed by multiple photographic techniques. These historical or contemporary processes are in keeping with his uniquely serene vision of the urban lands
