Wang Yigang is one of the earliest Chinese artists of his generation to engage in abstraction. For thirty years, abstraction has been his instrument of criticism and reflection, and has proven to be a lonely and difficult path, especially in culturally conservative and sensitive atmosphere of contemporary China.

Abstract Work

Catalog Entry
Wang Yigang’s Road to Abstraction
At first glance, Wang Yigang’s No. 23 of 2016 appears to be a work free of all conventions. However, the cacophony of paint and excess of artistic liberty is indicative of Wang Yigang’s mature style, and a product of the artist’s long venture into the field of abstraction.
