Lot description
"Double Happiness" (2008) is an exciting and visually dynamic cast bronze sculpture in the round that is one of the most complex and over-the top works by the famous Chinese Contemporary artist collective--the Luo Brothers, known for their Neo-Pop, vibrant and kitsch-laden figurative sculptures, reliefs and paintings. "Double Happiness" underscores the dual nature of the composition, featuring two smiling, chubby babies, who ride upon two large goldfish, as they hold out a double cheeseburger, as if this food and the large bottle of Coca-Cola they also hold are revered religious or cultural objects. A conflation of East and West, this sculpture is a literal and metaphorical conglomeration of what makes up urban Chinese Society today. "Double Happiness" is signed, in excellent condition, and measures 31.5 x 23.62 x 19.62 inches.

The world of the Luo Brothers' is a saccharine one that revels and enjoys the day-glo, glossy world of "new" China. Their oeuvre has been embraced by both curators and collectors for their unique narratives, themes and materials, and are represented by the top galleries in Asia, Europe and the U.S. The artists live and work in China.
