Wu Liang Yan
《祖国的花朵》NO.1小, 2012

32 x 23 x 14cm


Wu Liang Yu's figures are characterized with a red tie which is part of every Chinese student's uniform. To Wu and many young artists growing up under the Communist regime, this also represents the expectations of society towards youths. Constantly looking upwards with a beaming smile, the figures in Wu's sculptures reflect an insatiable desire for affirmation from authorities. The sculpture consists of a man and woman and their upper half of their bodies are combined together. They are also placed on a flower-shaped pedestal, which echo the title of the work, Flower of the Nation.

  • +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
