” Beijing-based Yue Minjun is one of the most important artists of the Chinese avant garde movement, Cynical Realism. Minjun's work is characterized by a signature laughing figure which serves as a portrait of the artist. Upon greater inspection the smiling faces contain fear, animosity, and a sense of discomfort that is a product of facing reality in contemporary times.”
