Wang Guangyi Bio

About The Artist

Wang Guangyi (born 1957) Harbin, Helongjiang Province, studied painting at the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts. He is best known for Great Criticism, a series of paintings and prints that have become icons of the "Political Pop" movement, an influential avant-garde style of Chinese painting that emerged in the late 1980s. A blend of communist propaganda imagery and Western Pop Art, Wang's paintings are graphically striking critiques of both modern Chinese and Western consumer culture. Wang's work has been exhibited widely in Asia, Europe and the Americas.
