Lot description
"Che Guevara II" (2008) is an exciting, large-scale oil painting by acclaimed Chinese emerging Contemporary artist Luo Taisheng (China, b. 1982). Easily mistaken for a pixilated close-up film-still, this is a portrait of one of the most recognizable icons in political and cultural world history, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the famous revolutionary, author, intellectual, guerrilla leader and diplomat who was a major figure of the Cuban Revolution. Luo's famous Series of realist paintings all recreate similar portraits sourced from cultural references and world-famous, popular cinema and television series', particularly images that are fragmented but are loaded with emotional and psychological intensity, playing on the viewer's memories of seeing these re-contextualized images years or even decades ago on screen. This painting measures 59 x 59 inches (150 x 150 cm) and is in excellent condition.

Luo Tai Sheng was born in 1982 in Hunan Province, China and graduated from Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts University, Xi'an, China - Faculty of Oil Painting, and teaches full time as a professional artist in Tung Chau del arts district in Shenzhen, China. Luo's exhibitions have included shows like "Contemporary Art Exhibition" Guan Shanyue, China, the Shenzhen International Art Fair in Shenzhen China, "The Lost Painting" at OLDCT Contemporary Art Center Shenzhen, China, and the International Arts & Antiques Fair Hong Kong among others. The artist currently lives and works in Shenzhen, China.
