Some interesting drawing by china artist Yue Minjun born in Daqing, Hei Long Jiang province, China. See some of his amazing painting and artwork 😀
The work at the Queens Museum ranges from a grouping of 20 life-size terracotta soldiers, left, grinning cast bronze versions of the famous statues unearthed years ago at the tomb of China`s first emperor, to a painting of a laughing version of himself holding another aloft in front of the Statue of Liberty.
“Three Men Laughing” A few years ago, Mr. Yue was eking out a precarious existence in one of Beijing`s artist colonies, trying to figure out a way to weave China`s tumultuous experience into his works. Now, largely on the strength of his signature grin, he has achieved stardom internationally.
At the Queens Museum, there is also a series called €œHats, in which Mr. Yue has painted himself in all sorts of headgear, from an American football helmet to a peaked cap of a soldier in China`s People`s Liberation Army, with that unvarying laugh on his face.
“Kung Fu – III”
2005 The mesmerizing enigma of that reddish face painted over and over again, with the wide laugh and the eyes tightly shut from the hilarious strain, is subject to a multitude of interpretations.
Mr. Yue was born in 1962 in China`s far northern Heilongjiang Province and moved to Beijing with his parents as a child. He studied oil painting at the Hebei Normal University and graduated in 1989, when China was rocked by student-led demonstrations and their suppression
on Tiananmen Square in June of that year.
