Damage Wu Liang Yan's child sculptures are always depicted wearing red ties, which are a key part of the Chinese school uniform. The ideal of studying well in order to attain a good career and progression for the future is deeply ingrained in Chinese society. In this sculpture, the figure adopts a pose of determination. Clenched fist in one hand and perhaps his younger sister in the other - he is depicted as bearing the weight of future generations as well. He sits on top of a book - the 'foundation' of his journey - and appears resolute and strong-willed. However, one questions if the hints of a smile really signify happiness or if he is just bracing himself for the rough world that lies ahead of him.

  • +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
