Description

Wang Zhiyuan was born in 1958 in Tianjin, China, and graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing. He moved to Australia in 1989 to earn his Master of Fine Arts in Sydney and worked there for over a decade, also serving as chief adviser for the prestigious White Rabbit Collection of contemporary Chinese art. He currently lives and works in Beijing. For Wang Zhiyuan, the things we discard or reject are vital and often lovelier or even uglier than we once thought. His boldly artistic style, using enormous and colorful metaphors, often parodies the contradictions in globalized consumption, market insatiability, politicized language, and social decay. His work is part of major collections in the Asia-Pacific region.
