Lot Details

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 man dressed in a business suit, who defies gravity, as he should be falling backwards yet manages to walk along a steep ground-line created, 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.
