Pope (2004), oil on canvas, 280 x 240 cm


"While a majority of the younger contemporary artists from China work in installation, video, or photography, Yan Pei-Ming (b. 1960 in Shanghai) remains a painter at heart. He has gained international recognition with his portraits (self-portraits and portraits of Mao), a very conventional and traditional subject matter considering the daring and provoking topics other artists transpose onto canvas. Relying on a limited palette of colours, his portraits are striking because of their balance between figuration and abstraction. His latest body of work goes beyond portraits, which may lead his career in a new direction."
