Enquire


The chubby cheeks of the boy in Wu's subject matter are symbolic of the inflated desires that youths today possess. Its face also shows a glint of idealism - the desire to achieve what he wants for himself, against all odds. The boy in this sculpture is also interestingly juxtaposed with the form of the Statue of Liberty, with its the torch replaced with a book and a magnifying glass. A star is also placed on the head of the boy, rendering the overall composition of the boy to be that of a trophy prize that a parent can bring home and display to others.

  • +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
