About the artwork
Chen's Red Boys resemble a lotus growing out of the mud, satisfying viewers' craving for a new trend of avant-garde art, i.e. to make art a vehicle of the construction of human nature rather than a weapon of criticism of human nature. His works attract outsiders, insiders, academics and avant-garde critics alike to appreciate them from their own perspectives.
