Lot description
In a style that is unique Chinese Contemporary artist Wu Yiming (China b. 1966), he uses the traditional art of Chinese ink painting as the foundation for his surreal impressions of modern life. Wu paints an anonymous red-headed figure dressed in brilliant blue pants and top, who defies gravity as they should be falling backwards, yet manages to walk along the steep ground-line seemingly suspended in time and space, creating an impression of fragility as well as transcendence. This ink and water-color painting on paper measures 21 x 15 inches (50 x 38 cm), is framed professionally to large dimensions (listed are approximate) and in excellent condition.

WU Yiming was born in 1966 in Shanghai, and graduated from the Fine Arts Department of East China Normal University. He now lives and works in Shanghai.
