Lot description
"Golden Gate" is one of Chinese Contemporary Pop artist Jiao Xingtao's largest, ironic and most important of his celebrated 'Gum Wrapper' sculptures. Inspired by the all-American, vivid yellow Wrigley's gum wrapper, the artist utilizes this iconic packaging to build a miniature version of San Francisco's famous bridge. This rare sculpture in the round is the final edition 8 of 8, measures 45.25 x 14.25 x 17.25 inches, (115 x 36 x 44 cm) and is the only edition of this work to ever come to international auction.
Acclaimed for his clever sculptures that replicate everyday items such as discarded packing boxes, gum wrappers, and crumpled bags from designer stores, the artist casts them in fiberglass, marble, bronze or glass, transforming them into hyper-realistic aesthetic objects. Admittedly inspired by Western Pop art such as the 'Brillo Box' sculptures of Andy Warhol, Jiao also exaggerates scale in a manner inspired by Western Pop artist Claes Oldenburg.
