Zhu Wei: New Pictures of the Strikingly Bizarre in Singapore and Hong Kong     2005

With the exploding global interest in Asian art everyone wants to know which artists will stand the test of time. Amongst them, one man, Zhu Wei stands tall. Though only 39 years old, this quiet and self-sufficient artist is producing some of the most exciting and dynamic work in Asia.

This brand new series of handmade prints, created by Zhu Wei at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute in 2004, demonstrates why Zhu Wei has the international art world’s attention.

Already a prolific and highly talented printmaker, at STPI Zhu Wei was able to push his boundaries even further, creating very large woodblocks which suit the imposing scale and expansive nature of his art - the largest woodcut being a 6 panel piece over 4m wide. With his distinctive, monumental figures and satirical political commentary, this new body of work has a sharpness, wit and confidence which is both arresting and thought provoking.

Seen as representative of the maturing of China’s modern art, Zhu Wei’s work is in much demand. Following the show in Singapore by STPI and in Hong Kong by Plum Blossoms Gallery, the print series will be exhibited in New York, USA at the end of this year.

CHINA ON THE CUSP June 22 - 25, 2004

Curated by Joe-Hynn Yang, Head of Chinese Works of Art, and Mee-seen Long, Senior Vice-President, Chinese Works of Art Department, Sotheby’s North America.

In the exhibition

CHINA ON THE CUSP introduces major contemporary artists from China exploring issues of identity, personal expression and the conflict between the nation’s history of socialist propaganda and the contemporary shift to economic market-liberalism. Among the artists shown, many of whom have deservedly gained international recognition, are Xu Bing, Gu Wenda, Wang Guanyi, Zhang Hongtu,

Zhu Wei, and Fang Lijun. Focusing on works on paper, oils and sculpture, this exhibition supplements the major exhibition of video and photography, “Between Past and Future”, currently ongoing at the Asia Society and the International Center of Photography. It reveals the range of major Chinese artists working in multiple media, such as Hong Hao, Song Dong, and Zhan Wang, as different and complementary works in both exhibitions reveal their development and distinctiveness as artists. CHINA ON THE CUSP heralds the powerful emergence, not just of the nation itself, but of its leading young visionaries in art.
