The grotesque, satirical sculptures of Chen Wenling

Recognized as one of the top contemporary sculptors in China today, Chen Wenling has participated in a number of prestigious exhibitions, such as Art Basel in Switzerland and the Shanghai Biennale. Chen Wenling says he was a playful child, “always monkeying around” and he wants to “challenge the extremes in both work and life.”

Chen has participated in many solo and group expositions and his work is always taking attentions by creativity and originality on interpretations. I think we can call it art!

The sculpture above – entitled ‘What You See Might Not Be Real’ – was created in response to the global financial crisis. The bull represents Wall Street, while the devil pinned to the wall portrays Bernard Madoff, operator of the largest ponzi scheme in history.

I love not only the imagery and subject matter Chen tackles but also the scale on which he creates it. In this case, bigger is definitely better.
