Ma Liang, or as known as Maleonn, is a highly imaginative photographer who now lives and works in Shanghai, China. He is one of the leading Chinese contemporary photographers that explored the photographic medium in a new way. Maleonn developed a distinct surreal and fable style that composeS elements of childhood naivety, fantasy worlds, as well as social and cultural expressions. His photographs are highly influenced by literature and film, thus, every photograph is intricately staged with actors and props, and every photograph tells a narrative in a lyrical, theatrical approach. Maleonn is considered a top cultural figure and emerging artist who playfully juxtaposes the old Chinese tradition with that of contemporary manner and techniques.
