Lot description
Note: "Time" is a color silk-screen on paper with dimensions listed for the print itself at 21.7 x 29.1 in. (55 x 74 cm). This print is in mint condition and is custom framed to slightly larger dimensions.

"Time" is one of two color prints created by Chinese artist Wang Guangyi included in the illustrious "The Giants of Contemporary Chinese art" portfolio that included 2 prints each by China's top 5 Contemporary artists. Wang Guangyi's aesthetic entails combining propaganda images and photographs from Communist China - and fusing them with Western commercial brands and logos, here clearly referencing TIME magazine. His most acclaimed series of paintings and prints, including 'TIME', belong to his 'Great Criticism' series, that have earned him international fame and a world-wide collectors base. On a surface level, his work intentionally imitates Andy Warhol's Pop Art works, but their content is a more complex commentary on socialism and consumerism. Wang Guangyi is one of the most important 'Political Pop' artists and a founder of the Chinese Avant-Garde movement in China.
