A Carpenter Chinese Citizen Barack Obama
Painting - Oil On Canvas
The painting is painted by Tu Guo Hong, graduated from Dept. Oil Painting of Sichuan Institute of Fine Arts. He is not only an artist on the filed of oil painting, but also a poet, has edited Kid of China, a large collection of poems, each addressing the "Kid" and the context he lives within. Only a few have been published in literary magazines, but all are widely circulated in typescript. They are said to reflect the spiritual state of intellectuals, artists and writers in China.
We are pleased to show his recently artworks extensively, a series paintings of "Chinese Citizen, Barack Obama ( American president )". The series paintings by Mr Tu Guohong are borrowing images of Obama' s portrait from media to replace Obama to a variety of Chinese underclass civilians. Those artworks not only implied Chinese people's dream of freedom, democracy and equality, but also show the farming and folk forms of Chinese folk life. This is a very different type of folk narrative. it clears the conflict with the coexistence of global and regional, international and China, contemporary and traditions.
