Bearing a red tie in reference to Chinese school uniforms, the figure seated cross-legged in a meditative pose is half-humanoid, half-animal. Placed on a pedestal and covered in gold, this sculpture reflects how venerated scholars or products of the education system are in China. Graduates are considered national treasures, leading to a huge pressure on young people to study hard to meet the expectations of their family and society.

  • +Artist Bio

    Born in 1982, Fujian Province, China, sculptor Wu Liang Yan creates sculptures representing the new face of Chinese youth. In all his works, the same figure is used - a young child with plump cheeks, bearing a disproportionately large head that is tilted upwards, with a red tie around his neck. Each part of the child's form is laden with meaning in the context of China's history and progression. Wu Liang Yan graduated from the prestigious Fujian Art Institute. Today, his critically acclaimed sculptures have been exhibited in both group and solo exhibitions in Xiamen, Beijing and France.  Read More
