Hao Ni is a Taiwanese artist currently attending the Art Institute of Chicago. His ability to create exhibits that force viewers to examine organic beauty, even in a dilapidated setting.
Hao Ni is an artist whose presence is ever-expanding in the Northeast art world. His work has been featured in exhibits at the Robert Bills Contemporary art gallery and the Chicago Urban Society, both focusing on his work with wood and sculpting.
In these Hao Ni creations, he turns damaged goods into art by focusing on the inherent beauty in architecture, regardless of its state. The structure of the buildings blends stylishly shoddy workmanship with artistic splendor. The result is a memorable installation that perfectly illustrates a simple snapshot of Hao Ni’s talent. If these dilapidated buildings are any indication (and I think they are), Hao Ni’s future in the art world is bright.
