About the artist Fang Lijun
Fang Lijun was born in Henan in 1963 and is currently based in Beijing. He studied printmaking at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and is one of the earliest Chinese avant-garde artists to garner international attention. Fang is a leading protagonist of cynical realism, a major movement of the post-1989 era in contemporary Chinese art. His politically driven paintings reflect issues of human rights, morality, and political oppression.
