In the series entitled Floating, Chinese artist Zhao Huasen took seemingly mundane photographs of people in China riding their bikes down the street. He then digitally removed the bike from each image so the riders appeared to be floating.

Born in 1982 in the city of Dailian (located in the Liaoning province of Northeast China), Zhao graduated from the Experimental Art Department at the China Academy of Fine Art in 2005. He also attended the Chelsea College of Art & Design in 2007. For more information, please visit the Feizi Gallery.
