The Work of Yue Minjun

March 10, 2012

For a long time, we weren't quite sure if the subjects in Beijing, China based Yue Minjun's paintings were self-portraits or a personal character created. They are indeed, self-portraits. We just read that Yue is often classified as part of the Chinese "Cynical Realist" movement in art developed in China since 1989. Yue rejects this label.
