Laughing Red Man statue inspired by Chinese artist Yue Minjun
CONDITION: slight scratch by right eye eyebrow (See picture)
A modern art sculpture in all its form, this resin model of a laughing man is a striking piece of decoration for most environments.
Yue Minjun, its original designer, is a Chinese artist born in 1962. Working in his youth as an electrician with an oil-painting university degree, it wasn’t until the 90s that he started to adventure himself in the world of art with his Self Portraits focused specially on his “own laugh” and laughter.
For him, laughter was a way of shedding a light to conscience and self understanding in dark times as were the late 80s and early 90s for China’s youth – an era of turbulence, of protests, and of last exercises of old school oppression and violence by governmental forces over pacific movements.
Undeniably, looking at Yun Minjun statues makes us think of a carefree attitude that is probably very helpful in life. Read more and see more of his in here.
