Wang Qingsong (*1966) has a history of being known as the enfant terrible of contemporary Chinese photography. His oeuvre combines traditional Chinese art and a staunch political rejection of everything normative.
An artistic trademark of his work is a link to Chinese Pop Art of the nineteen eighties: the depiction of brand names within a loud and bold imagery captures a fast-changing environment in gaudy fashion. All the while, Quingsong’s artworks are in dialogue with China, as the artist unfolds his criticism of consumption, materialism and commerce in Chinese society.
