Untitled (Neon with two faces)

Beginning his career as a graffiti artist, Zhang Dali explored the stoic, oppressed faces of migrant workers, who he believes are vital but invisible contributors to contemporary Chinese society. Untitled (Neon with Two Faces) brings his earlier work off the street and into the gallery. With the addition of a second face, Zhang hopes to introduce a dialogue among the overlooked workers and to encourage them to discuss modernization and autonomy rather than to mutely endure a life of blindly performed tasks.
