Minghao Dong | on Tumblr (b.1983, China/France)

Minghao Dong was born in Inner Mongolia, China. Graduated from University of Dalian in 2008, Minghao works predominantly in the medium of painting but also engravings and installations. Gerard Richter has been the greatest influence. This new series of paintings is a reflection of the artist pondering on the properties of human, life and death in a time characterized by impatience, fragments, nihility, and a duality of highly developed civilization and disorder. Minghao Dong has had solo exhibitions in Dalian at Tianyi Gallery, and has participated several group exhibitions in China. He lives and works in Paris since 2009.

For our latest podcast, The Skull, we did a little experiment in 3D printing.

Visit our Thingiverse page and print your own 2 million-year-old skull (or, if you don’t have access 3D printer, at least check out the nifty “thingview” option).

(Thanks to Henry Reich of MinutePhysics fame for snapping these photos!)
