David Diao’s paintings, Easy Chair #1 and Easy Chair #2, 1999, show the Grand Confort Armchair designed by Le Corbusier. From Diao's perspective, people always think that modern furniture is clean and shiny, but in fact it does not remain new forever. With this concept in mind, he brings the image of Corbusier's armchair in a worn state to a dark grey ground. In addition, Diao also mentioned that another inspiration for the two works comes from Henri Matisse’s remark about making painting for the tired businessman like a comfortable easy chair.
