Lot Details

Zhong Biao (China, B. 1968) is unquestionably one of the most famous post-Modern Chinese artists working today, and has defined the Contemporary Realist movement in his country. This color silkscreen print "The 8th of March" is an unabashed example of his work, measures 27.15 x 38.20 inches (69 x 97 cm), is from an edition of 99 and is in excellent condition. The date and theme of this sexually loaded narrative refer to "Women's Day" celebrated on the 8th of March in China. The manner in which Zhong conflates intense images of female nudity with a kitsch-filled scene of a a couple love-making while wearing animal masks creates a narrative that is at once intense, erotic, absurd and commonplace.

Zhong Biao received his formal training 1987 at The Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now China Academy of Fine Arts), Hangzhou, China. Zhong Biao has exhibited widely throughout U.S, including San Francisco, Aspen, New York, Miami, and Chicago. He has also had select solo and group exhibitions in The U.K., Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea and China, and his paintings fetching over $100,000 USD at international auctions. He was also commissioned to design the most recent Official China World Cup poster, that formally represented China. The artist lives and works in China.
