是小波 1985年出生于江苏 ，2011年毕业于中国美术学院公共艺术学院壁画系，现工作居住于上海和杭州。是小波特别关注绘画作为表现媒介和系统的定义，抛开对客观世界和概念的依赖，重视绘画的创作过程，重新引入色彩，形状和颜料深度等元素，从而在观看中重塑重量感和感受鲜明的物理存在，其浓缩的视觉表达在非具象世界内部嵌入新的形体模式，将自我体验转化为模糊而富有隐喻性的线条，建构在绘画和雕塑中，寻找极简主义之后丢失的绘画的象征。
Shi Xiaobo was born in Jiangsu Province in 1985, and graduated from MuralDepartment of Public Art Institute, China Academy of Art (CAA) in 2011. He now works and lives in Shanghai/Hangzhou. Shi Xiaobo pays specific attention to the definition of painting as the expression medium and system. Putting aside the dependence on the objective world or concepts, he focuses on the creation process of painting, and re-introduces elements such as colors, shapes and darkness levels of pigments, so as to reshape the sense of heaviness and feel the apparent physical existence from the viewing process. His concentrated visual expression is embedded into new modes of shape in the non-figurative world, and by transforming the self-experience into blurry but metaphorical lines, and constructing in paintings and sculptures, he looks for the symbol of paintingthat was lost after the emergence of minimalism.
Simultaneously, he constantlyexamines the balance between chaos and harmony, trying to discover a way to coordinate the objects and metaphors, in order to place the works at the intersections of reality and imagination.Shi Xiaobo's works have been shortlisted for the 2nd John Moores Painting Prize(China), and exhibited in/collected by Westlake Museum of Contemporary Art,Ningbo Museum of Art, SPSI Art Museum, Sanshang Art in Hangzhou, etc.
