Opening - Wang Yidong @ Triumph Art Space in Beijing

Chinese contemporary art is not all about Political Pop and Cynical Realism; some artists have reacted to the pink Mao and eschewed the ‘concept over form’ approach, by embracing a very painterly realism of intimate scenes of everyday life. Amongst the champion of the Chinese Neo-Realism movement is Wang Yidong, known for his romanticized depiction of the Chinese feminine form. This exhibition present a retrospective of Wang’s work since 1986, showing the fusion between western classical painting, Chinese traditional painting and folk art that the artist favours.
