Yue Minjun

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Yue Minjun is a contemporary Chinese artist who works in Beijing. He is most widely known for his oil paintings that show himself laughing in a variety of different settings. He has also copied this image in watercolor, prints and sculpture. Critics have labeled him a part of the "Cynical Realism" movement in China, although he has distanced himself from that group personally.
 
« I’m actually trying to make sense of the world. There’s nothing cynical or absurd in what I do. »
Yue Minjun
Yue Minjun takes his inspiration from the work of Geng Jianyi, who had used his own laughing visage as a central focus in his work. Yue studied painting from 1985 to 1989 at Hebei Normal University.
 
« My experiences, feelings and some things from my cultural past have been essential for my current artistic creation. »
Yue Minjun

Yue Minjun’s work has appeared in many galleries in Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore. His work Executiondrew the highest price of any Chinese contemporary artwork ever when it went for US$5.9 million at Sotheby's in London. By 2007, 13 of his paintings had sold for more than US$1 million. His "Hat" series remains one of his most widely admired.

What is pop-art?

What is pop-art?

Refers to an art movement that began in Britain in 1955 and late 1950s in the U.S. It challenged fine arts tradition by including popular culture imagery such as news and advertising. Pop art sometimes isolates and removes a material from its context and combines it with another unrelated material. This concept refers much to the attitudes that resulted in it and not on the art itself. Pop art employs comic books, advertising and other mass culture aspects. It is interpreted to have come as a reaction to abstract expressionism dominant ideas.
