YE HONGXING

Ye Hongxing (叶红杏) is a Beijing-based artist, born in 1972 in Guangxi Province, China. She has graduated from the Fine Art Department of Educational Academy in Guilin and completed her Master’s program in Printing Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts.

One of the most relevant and successful stars of the contemporary Chinese art scene, Ye Hongxing was previously selected as one of the top 20 contemporary Chinese artists by the curator of California’s Asia Art Museum and the director of Art Cologne. Working in oil paint, mixed media, sculpture, and installation, Ye’s works have been well-received internationally. Using symbols of the everyday and patterns from tradition, Ye Hongxing creates an animated contemporary in response to her perception of China’s development and the international preoccupation with money and the material. Working in sculpture, oil paint and sticker montages, her work reflects the contradiction within society using a decorative visual language. Her works relish a sense of vivid, exquisite chaos, expressing a richness and luxury that combines bright hues with pop culture symbols and traditional motifs. Visually sublime scenes layer oppositions of tranquility and intricate frenzy, incorporating both realism and the visionary.
