Saying au revoir to Chinese Art : the multiple smiles of Yu Minjun

This Chinese artist and his oil creations of self in commercial and collectible artworks that straddle the line between social commentary political criticism whilst simultaneously being creepy, confounding, confusing and comical I present to you an artist that is celebrated by alarmist Chinese galleria and Chinese art enthusiasts.
Yu Minjun’s works are unfamiliar to the most educated of viewers. His character(s) create distance as well as a voyeur in all of us. As I was unfamiliar with his work as well till my trip to Hong Kong and Singapore. I present, for the initiated, a list of articles that do justice to the Art and Artist.
