Lot Details

Yue Minjun is unquestionably one of the most recognized and influential Chinese contemporary artists and is considered among the leading artists in the international scene today. Born in 1962 in the Northeast of China, Yue Minjun moved to Beijing in 1989 after graduating from the painting department of Hebei Normal University. His iconic self portraits with their almost painfully exaggerated grins have become the consummate symbol of the “cynical realist” style that grew out of the mounting political pressures and social contradictions in the post–Tienanmen period of the early to mid-1990s. This editioned image from 2006 is a remarkable and sought after example of Yue Minjun's characteristic style and imagery.

Yue Minjun has been a feature artist at numerous significant international biennales and his work is also found in some of the most notable private and public collections around the world.
