Lot description
"Utopia no. 16" (2012) is a stunning large-scale realist oil painting with a cropped, close-up composition of beautiful pink flowers in full bloom with miniature bright red winged human figures, frolicking as if honey bees, their vivid color referencing China. This painting belongs to Shi's seminal new "Utopia" series that marks a significant new direction in the artist's oeuvre, which for decades was based on an intense black and red color palette and Mao's power-based imagery. Instead, the "Utopia" series celebrates the growing peace and prosperity in modern-day China as well as the blossoming potential for the individuals of China. "Utopia no. 16" measures 39.37 x 59.00 inches (100 x 150 cm) is unframed and in perfect condition.

Shi Lifeng is one of the most famous artists of his 1960's generation of 'Chinese Avant Garde' artists and has exhibited at top international museums and galleries such as the Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art, Yang Gallery (Singapore), and Beijing Contemporary Art Museum (Beijing, China), among others. Shi Lifeng graduated in 1991 from the Hebei Normal University, Hebei Province, China with a Degree in Painting.
