Weiliang's Babooons are stark, brilliant and enigmatic, their facial expressions highly evocative and lively, complementing the wild colour choice and expressive impasto work of the artist. Weiliang's repeated motif of apes is a conceptual aesthetic, the sheer number of them meant to mirror the interconnectedness of our populous and ever-growing society. His apes are a symbol of humanity, where here they are packed close and tight, both literally and metaphorically forced to be aware of each other and the impact they have on each other existence. Weiliang uses this black humor to comment on the information overload that technology and social media causes in today's globalised environment. The use of colour is a notable feature in the his work. With cool blue shades against the harshness of their red faces and golden eyes, these intuitive and intelligent creatures help the artist create a painting arguably filled with dynamic zest and a striking, alluring quality.
