Cao Xiaodong (b. 1961, Jiangsu) is a Chinese contemporary artist who currently works and resides in Beijing.
Cao’s works are a result of combining modern technology and traditional painting. He scans his collected images and converts them into standardized dots using Photoshop. He subsequently transfers a “ghost” version of the image onto canvas and paints them in oils one dot at a time. Cao’s aesthetic language also includes the use of keyboard commands such as Save As, Ctrl+V and Exit to question our similarities and differences in identity.
Cao Xiaodong has exhibited internationally in USA, Australia, Netherlands, China and Singapore.
