Pei Ming Yan and Michael Andrew Law

 

Yan Pei-Ming (Simplified Chinese: 严培明) is a Chinese painter born in 1960 in Shanghai. 

Since 1982 he has lived in Dijon, France. His most famous paintings are "epic-sized" portraits of Mao Zedong worked out in black and white or red and white. He works with big brushes, and his paintings are brought to life by the rapid brush strokes which structure the picture space.

 

“Yan Pei-Ming has become the ultimate artist portraying the iconic characters of our time. His work stands as a major reference on the international contemporary art scene and this show should remain a milestone in history since it features the icons of tomorrow: the next generation of Chinese citizens framed into an empty landscape, the future”, says Jérôme Sans, UCCA Director and co-curator of Landscape of Childhood.

 

Fusing the Western tradition of portrait painting with China’s cultural history, Yan Pei-Ming creates large-scale works depicting real and imaginary people. Yan’s portraits, typically mono- or bi-chromatic, often verge on abstraction, with broad, patterned brushstrokes and drips of paint. He is perhaps best known for his monumental self-portraits, including Double (Selfportrait at the Morgue) (2006), a watercolor of the artist as a dead man, as well as his eight-foot-tall portraits of Mao Zedong, Bruce Lee, and his father.
