Lot description
Reminiscent of Warhol’s screen-printed female celebrities, the Neo-Pop portrait paintings by Chinese artist Feng Zhengjie reflect his vision of futuristic pop. "Chinese portrait L" (2006) is a museum-level oil painting by Feng, measures 82.68 x 118.11 inches (210 x 300 cm) is unframed and in excellent condition. Feng's most sought-after works are painted at this massive scale, replicating billboards, in which he glorifies advertising as epic, enduring, and ultimately empty. His stunning portraits of super-hybrids of commercial beauty are influenced by advertisement imagery, with their vivid pink and green colors, electrified auras and brilliant red lips exuding the glamour of commodified desire and the global quest for physical perfection that is never truly attainable.

The artist was born in 1968 in China and received his formal arts education
with a B.F.A. from Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, China in 1992 and
