Since the early 1990s, Wang Xingwei has pioneered a painterly vision that links Chinese contemporary art intelligently to its Western referents, socialist realist precedents, and immediate cultural context through a universe of recurring characters rendered in seemingly infinite subtle variations of style and composition. Wang is reflexive about the visual language he has inherited, but relentlessly inventive in its deployment. An artist known for his quirky sensibility and sharp wit, Wang freely appropriates style and content from different traditions, employing them in highly creative and dramatic scenarios.

This artwork was featured in the UCCA exhibition “Wang Xingwei,” 2013
