Born in 1969 in Guangdong, China. Lives in Shenzhen.

Outside his professional activities, Aniu undertakes unique personal projects. For example, every morning when he wakes up he takes a black and white self portrait. This exercise has resulted in a large mural, a direct accumulation traced with humour – a dozen empty spaces serve as a reminder of the mornings when he forgot his exercise.

But Aniu mainly focuses on studies of colour and the city. With the aid of digital manipulation, the poetry of his contemporary urban landscape is perceived as huge and burdening. His mission is not to document the city but rather provoke feelings, sometimes contradictory, facing his experiences with the spaces in which he finds himself.
