Meng Yangyang - 孟阳阳

1983 – Born in Chongqing, China
2006 – Graduated from Oil Painting Department of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute
2009 – Graduated Master degree of Oil painting Department in Sichuan Fine Arts Institute

Meng Yangyang was born in 1983 and graduated from Oil Painting Department of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and received a master degree. In 2006, her work was outstanding in the China Asian Art Weel in Lodon. The works of Meng Yangyang was strongly admired by galleries in London and people from the Palm Beach International Design Expo. She is one of the first Chinese artists, whose artwork is not influenced by President Mao’s Totalitarianism, and yet, these young artists are emerging in a country that is rapidly growing and changing. Western culture has influenced the character of Meng Yangyang and the young artists like her; their artwork reflects how china is turning into a brand new and well developed country. However, the insecurity extended from this changing country is the reason why that young people are trying to find themselves in the fantasy world. 

In Meng Yangyang’s work, the hands and the eyes of the figure are often exaggerated; the intention is to convey that strong thirst to communicate with the world. The message in her work reflects her own situation in the art market where she gets pressure from, and seeing artists at her age facing the early profit collide between interpersonal relationships. Delicately depict the wild origin that was hidden in her heart.

1983年出生於重慶 畢業於四川美院油畫系研究所.06年參與了英國的展覽”亞洲藝術在倫敦” 受到歐洲藏家的矚目,07年在棕櫚灘國際設計博覽會以及倫敦的畫廊個展都受到相當的好評.
孟陽陽屬於第一代作品中沒有毛式極權主義的中國藝術家, 他們崛起於一個急速成長轉型的中國, 西方文化經濟的影響形塑了孟陽陽及其同期藝術家年少時期的性格, 反映了一個全新和轉變中的國家. 人際當中的不安全感使得新世代的年輕人只能在動漫世界中尋找一種理想的幻身. 

在孟陽陽的作品裡面, 人物的手與眼都被誇大來處理, 用意都有在指向一種渴望與外界溝通的強烈想法. .她自己的作品當中捕捉到自己這樣年紀所面臨到強烈被藝術市場關注以及同儕之間過早被迫面對利益衝突的群聚疏離問題. 細膩的描繪出內心隱蔽的狂暴本源.
