A couple of weeks ago I learned about the Ren Hang TASCHEN edition that was about to come out and I thought that it would be an amazing addition to my art books. Lately, I’ve been struggling a bit with money bc I am a student living in an expensive city but as Ren Hang is one of my favourite contemporary artists I really wanted to get myself one of his first real non self released art books.
I fought a bit and finally convinced myself that I would get this.
A day later I woke up to the news that Ren Hang had comitted suicide. Today my issue finally arrived and while looking through it I came across this section about him that contained an entry of his website.
Life is indeed a Precious gift But I often feel It seems to send the wrong man
