Chinese contemporary art is the most creative strain of contemporary art. I’ve previously featured work by Yue Minjun and Liu Jianhua.
Over the past couple of days (an intensive browsing session) I find Wei Dong, who can best be described as the Chinese John Currin.
I could have discovered Dong in 2006 when Bait (2005) was featured on phantasmaphile and in that same year when PonyXpress featured him, but I didn’t.
For those of you in NY, please visit the Nicholas Robinson Gallery and check Dong’s Playmate, (2008).
Playmate is Icon of Erotic Art #40.
