Lot description
"Goodbye to Sleepless Nights No. 2" (2008) is one of the most iconic and stunning silkscreen in colors that depicts the very best of the surreal, highly expressionistic and extremely dynamic figurative paintings and prints by Deng Jianjin (China, b. 1961). His unmistakeably lush, dream-like figurative paintings and color silk-screen prints tend to blur the lines between civility and rebellion, private versus public, with a focus on sexually charged situations. Deng’s works mirror his personal anxiety toward rapidly developing Chinese culture since the early 1990’s. Deng's works strive to be controversial, pushing the limits of taboo and morality in his oeuvre. This print measures 39.40 x 29.50 inches (100 x 75 cm) from an edition of 69 and is in excellent condition.

Deng Jianjin was born in Guangdong Province, China in 1961 and graduated from Jingdezhen Ceramic College, Jiangxi Province. He has held many solo exhibitions throughout China and has taken part in the 7th and 8th National Art Expo in China. In 1992 the artist participated in the 2nd China Contemporary Art Archive Expo and won the Academy award in “The National Oil Painting Biennale” and “The National 3rd Language Painting Expo” along with several more awards. His works are included in the Singapore Art Museum, the Duolun Modern Art Museum, and the Guangzhou Art Museum, and have been shown in multiple exhibitions throughout Asia. Deng Jianjin currently the vice-headmaster of the Attached High School of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in China.
