Art knox limelight:a new series showcasing rising visual artists

The Bombay Knox blog presents a new art series exhibiting up and coming visual artists based both locally and globally.

This week for our very first post of the series we introduce Liu Tao from Hefei, Anhui, China. 

From humble beginnings to self-taught photographer, Liu captures subtle moments of street life that revolve around contemporary issues of China. For his photographic weapon of choice, Liu uses a Fujifilm X100 crediting the accomplished Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama for his decision in camera. Though at times his photography can come off as whimsical, Liu explains the purpose behind his photography is to simply capture his perspective of the world--which he further clarifies that his work is also open for interpretation like all forms of art.
