Lot Details

Representing Chinese Contemporary artist Yin Jun's dramatization of contemporary Chinese culture and the headlong rush of China into mass consumerism and globalization, 'Crying no. 31' (2011) is a dynamic oil painting of an exaggerated male figure, who is dressed as a businessman wearing a white collared shirt and red tie, crying with over-sized tears the brazen and uncontrollable emotions of a child. In this surreal narrative, Yin's characteristic pink bald-headed protagonist emerges from a television or computer screen, underscoring the new, modern age China finds itself in. This painting measures 23.70 x 19.25 inches (60 x 50 cm) and is in excellent condition.

Yin Jun was born in the Sichuan Province of China in 1974, Jun was inspired to paint by his older brother, the artist Yin Kun. With no formal art training, Jun entered the Deyang Fine Arts Academy and graduated in 1992. Jun’s work has been exhibited widely throughout China and has been the subject of solo shows at Wellington Gallery, 9Art Space, Beijing, China and Willem Kerseboom Gallery, Amsterdam, Netherlands, amongst others.
