About The Artwork

Artist name: Chen Wenling Title: No Big Deal Size: 48x24x19cm Medium: Bronze Limited Edition: 300 Chen Wenling 1969 Born in Quanzhou, Fujian Province, China Received Bachelor of Arts from the Sculpture Department of Xiamen Academy of Art and Design and Master of Fine Arts from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China [Public Collections] China Art Museum Beijing Today Art Museum National Gallery of Korea Seoul Museum of Art Doosan Art Center, Seoul Houston Museum of Fine Arts Denver Art Museum Arox Art Museum The White Rabbit Gallery Melbourne Museum Guangdong Museum Fujian Normal University Nanjing University Fujian Museum Hubei Museum of Art The Art Gallery of Western Australia Red Memory Series The use of bright red color in presenting the boys depicts not only the symbolic and auspicious color considered by Chinese traditions, but also a testament of the artist’s fiery attitude towards life. The Red Boys, naked and free, have nothing to hide. Simple and true- a direct communication with nature and a conversation between society and people is what Chen Wenling’s works communicate to the audiences. The cheeky expressions and arresting poses is a celebratory call to the audiences embracing the inner child in every viewer. The Red Boy series have attracted locals, international audiences, academics and avant-garde critic a like to appreciate them from their own perspectives. Chen Wenling is recognized as one of the top ten contemporary sculptors in the international art industry. Known for his provoking and interesting twist in his sculptural works, Chen Wenling shot to artistic fame with his ‘Red Memory’ series, showcasing the playful naked boys covered in shiny red paint. He completed his study in the Sculpture Department at Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and started working as a professional artist ever since. His works are modest and earthy and there is often a clear connection between the man and nature dialogue depicted in his sculptures. We can notably see the dramatic and moving sculptures, captured in action whenever we come across Chen Wenling’s works. Chen Wenling never fails to bring a whimsy and playfulness tone to sculpture while at the same time, maintaining his stance as a sophisticated artist in his own unique figurative style. Chen Wenling’s works have marked many places in the world where he exhibited in the First China Art Triennial at Guangzhou Art Museum in China (2002), Chinese Sculpture Masterpieces Exhibition of the Beijing International Biennale in China (2003), China-Belgium Contemporary Sculpture Exhibition at Antwerp in Belgium (2004), Grounding Reality: Chinese Contemporary Art Exhibition in Korea (2005) and 37th Art Exposition in Basel of Switzerland (2006). In 1999, Chen Wenling received the Venice Biennial International Prize of the Golden Lion in Italy and not long after, he received the Alpert Award in the Arts in the United States. In 2005, he received the award for best installation in the Museum for Inopportune in France. After his impressive display of the Red Memory series in both Cottesloe and Bondi Beach in Australia, Chen Wenling has been recently invited to return to exhibit in Denmark in 2013 due the well received demand in 2011 exhibition.
