About The Artist

Born in Handan City, Hebei Province, China, LV Yanjun received no formal education as he has hearing impairment and could not write. However, with his exceptional positive attitude in life, he persevered and taught himself the art of painting. This admirable artist is critical of the loss of political discourse in modern Chinese society. The women that LV Yanjun paints strike the viewer with their flawless appearance of perfect Oriental features and sensual lips.

Contained in the images of these women is LV Yanjun's attempt to articulate the desire of the modern Chinese for the superficial and their display of such superficial accumulation. He further emphasises this through painting these woman in the full uniform of the Cultural Revolution. With Daughters of Dragons, LV Yanjun uses this image to hint at what he believes is a the regression in Chinese society. He creates a contrast between China's current material obsession with the more admirable ideals of the Chinese individual of the past.
