When it comes to Chinese prints, we at artelino are a bit spoiled. That's for sure. Our art agent supplies us roughly once per month with selected, top art prints - either by leading Chinese printmakers and painters or by young, emerging artists. But what we received recently, blew our socks off. A series of large format woodblock prints by Li Haiping. The prints show images of lips and a second series shows hands with a small insect. We simply LOVE these prints. Everybody of the artelino staff is crazy for LIPS and HANDS.
At first glance one would not consider the figures in the print to be Chinese. The people of Lagu or Lahu, however, are one of 55 officially recognized minorities in China and one of many who call the Yunnan province their home. It is therefore no accident that an independent and influential art school from Yunnan has emerged and distinguished itself in China's varied cultural and geographical landscape. Printmaker and painter Zhang Yonghan is one of the most famous artists of the younger generation, who have tried to follow the traditions before Mao's Cultural Revolution, while simultaneously finding their own way to contemporary art. With the reduction woodblock print, "Mountain Village of Lagu," he has without a doubt achieved a masterpiece of the highest quality.
