Matthew Deleget interviews painter David Diao. A retrospective of Diao's work is on view at The Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing through November 15, 2015.

Diao remarks: "The best thing about art-making is that you plan everything, but once the work is done, you're surprised by accidents that make it more interesting."
