Lot description
This "Landscape With Poster No. 1" painting by Chinese Contemporary artist Zhao Bo (B. 1974, Sichuan, China) exemplifies the artist's iconic use of vivid colors and reinvented social propaganda. The three figures are depicted with bulging eyes and cartoonish features, posing as an ideal Chinese family. A token political star peaks a public building surrounded by the media billboards and marketing of consumer goods of today's world.

Zhao Bo was born into a politicized society and has applied the ideological approach of his society to his art referencing his immediate surroundings as his inspiration. His ostentatious figures and explosive range of colors encompass the exuberance and vitality of the new generation evolving in modern China. Mocking social realist propaganda, Bo expounds on the clash between communism and capitalism in a post-Mao world.

Zhao Bo has exhibited at venues the world over including shows at the Art Museum of Yuangong (Shanghai, CN), Chinese Contemporary Gallery (London, UK), and the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art (Denver, CO), among numerous others.
