Catalogue of solo exhibition by Zhao Leiming at SooBin Art International Singapore in 2006. 'Zhao Leiming is a young painter who appears under the backdrop of high-speed development of Chinese economy, the old values gradually collapse and new concepts emerge consequently. His paintings always express a certain personal conditions with a series of insane, solitude, yelling and shuddering. His personal feeling still stays in a primitive anxiety. From him, one can hardly identify any sign of the fleeting development of times, but only daily life which can never be cast off - lowly, downcast, endless trouble and secret anguish for a no-accomplishment youth.' - excerpt from essay by Mao Xuhui. The present catalogue includes artist statement and biography.
