Chen Wenling, Strong Man
Stainless Steel, Edition of 10
Chen Wenling (b. 1969) is a contemporary neo-realist artist. Through a variety of surreal, often grotesque sculptures—most often executed in a bright monochrome red—he examines the rapid rise of consumerism in modern-day China and the fraught relationship with its more austere Communist past. He lives and works in Beijing, China.
