Wei Dong, and, Icon of Erotic Art #40

Chinese contemporary art is the most creative strain of contemporary art. I’ve previously featured work by Yue Minjun[1] and Liu Jianhua[2].

Over the past couple of days (an intensive browsing session) I find Wei Dong[3], who can best be described as the Chinese John Currin[4].

I could have discovered Dong in 2006 when Bait (2005) was featured on phantasmaphile[5] and in that same year when PonyXpress featured him[6], but I didn’t.

For those of you in NY, please visit the Nicholas Robinson Gallery and check Dong’s Playmate, (2008)[7].

Playmate is Icon of Erotic Art #40.
