Full Description

This book is a collection of the most recent works of Fan Bo, an artist who stands apart from the clichés used by contemporary Chinese artists, most of whom developed with realist-socialist style artistic training and who largely went on to participate in the wave of dissidence from the stylistic standard prevalent in China from 1985 onwards, leading most of them towards the influence of Western approaches.

That period of time was of particular importance for the artist who, as the scholar Filippo Salviati (whose essay is included in the book) stated, suddenly altered his artistic journey during those years, turning from the use of a visionary, yet still figurative painting, to a broader, all-round use of materials, media and styles, even trespassing boldly across Eastern and Western sensibilities. However, the artist’s poetics and intentions appear to be endowed with an internal coherence and this book illustrates them by carefully explaining the details through the essays of five scholars and experts of contemporary Western and Eastern art: Giacinto Di Pietrantonio, Filippo Salviati and Yvonne Spielmann, to whom we are very grateful, as well as the undersigned curators of the work.

Text in English and Italian.
