1955 · China
One of the most important artists in China, Fu Wenjun’s artistic practice dates back to the late 1980s. His oeuvre integrates innovatively the visual techniques of East and West art, expanding the boundaries of artistic expression. Fu Wenjun keeps reflecting on various issues related to the Western and Eastern history, culture and humanity, and is good at transforming what may seem to be an inaccessible message into a highly approachable concept.
