Asian Contemporary Art
Leading Chinese Contemporary artist Yue Minjun (b.1962) has become a prominent figure in the international art market with his iconic self-portraits that offer a vivacious take on modern-day China.
Grotesque yet lighthearted, Minjun’s paintings have become the consummate symbol of the cynical realist style that grew out of the mounting political pressures and social contradictions in the post-Tienanmen period of the early to mid-1990s.
Pictured is Yue Minjun’s Sky. Animal. Human-being (2002), which is now live for bidding on artnet Auctions.
