Maoist Humours - Paintings of Wang Xunliang

March 30 - April 20, 2007

Artist will attend the opening ceremony from 6:30 to 8:30pm on March 30, 2007

Art Beatus Gallery re-launches its new exhibition space in the SOHO district of Hong Kong art scene with an exhibition of paintings by Wang Xunliang.

Wang, a self-taught Hong Kong artist who became physically handicapped due to an illness early in his life, has been persistent in his artistic pursuit. His one of a kind Chinese landscape paintings were first featured in our Gallery two years ago.

In his “Yun-Dong” exhibition coming at the end of March, Wang pokes fun on the political movements of Mao’s era. “Yun-Dong”, which literally means sports, carries a demonic double meaning in China during the 50’s all the way up to the 70’s. The term, physically, connotes political purging.

With the Beijing Olympic Games soon coming up next year, Wang depicts for us a series of paintings on Mao doing various kinds of sports, all in good humour of creating a harmonious society.

Art Beatus Gallery’s new exhibition space is located at 35 Graham Street, Ground Floor, Central, Hong Kong (near Hollywood Road and Lyndhurst Terrace). For further information about this exhibition or for interviewing the artist, you can e-mail us at or call either Dominic Chan at 2522-1138 or Josephine Hau at 2526-0818.

Gallery hours: Mon. to Sat. 11:30am – 7:30pm, close on Sundays & public holidays.
