Wang Luyan

Sunday, July 4, 2010


Born: Beijing, 1956
Lives and works in: Beijing
Graduated from Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts, Hangzhou, 1988

Wang Luyan has never been primarily interested in public plaudits for his art. In fact, he stopped exhibiting altogether in the mid-1990’s rather than adapt his works to comply with the popular demand for Western influenced artworks based on predictable themes of Chinese revolution and politics. Now that the artistic environment in China has changed, Wang Luyan believes that there is once more “soil” in which his ideas can take root. Through his unique and distinctive style, Wang’s critical voice can now once again be heard
