Catalogue of Ji Lei's solo exhibition at Shine Art Space, Shanghai in 2006. Featured in the catalogue are paintings from his Legend of the Red series (2005). Zhou Chunya wrote, 'Ji Lei's themes and styles have been through some major changes in the last ten years: from those expressionistic head portraits to the blue, illusory forms; from the incandescent colours to the anguishing blues of his astral universe; from his childhood perception of Cultural Revolution to the computer games that fill our lives today.' According to Zhou, Legend of the Red is full of dreams and hopes, and it represents Ji Lei's view on the conflicts and paradox in Chinese society. Aritst biogrpahy is provided in the catalogue.
