He Jian, an established China artist will be holding his debut solo exhibition in Kuala Lumpur until 4th October 2012. The exemplary works of this artist is brought for the art loving public through RK Fine Art where it will showcase some of the most recent works of He Jian.
The unique body of work from He Jian will be on display from 21st September to 4th October 2012 and will bring the viewer back to memory lane through some of his takes on the retrospective years. Essentially, this would be one of his latest works where he expresses his thoughts through some of his unique elements and styles.
He Jian is known for his use of the Chinese culture in his body of work where as a contemporary artist, he mixes a lot of different media like rice paper and binder instead of the more favoured oil. The name of the exhibition is inspired by the 1958 propaganda Chinese movie which basically means Continuous Wave.
The exhibition will involve a series of receivers that were in use during the 1980s where images of radios and such were the main communication tools then. It was also during that time that the communist propaganda was transmitted and communicated. As an artist, He Jian is one of the top students at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, the place where he would continue on as an oil painting lecturer after graduation.
These works would be interesting for the viewing public which are inspired from He Jians childhood experience that with its old film grain expressions, draws the viewer back to the times before the internet and modern technologies. Perhaps the only element missing in the works would be the static sound of the radio which to a certain extent seemed to be vividly seen in the paintings.
