Alexan­dre Er­rera: Wang Yi

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

Con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese artist Wang Yi may only be 25 years old, but he has al­ready been shown in sev­eral gal­leries and mu­se­ums. His work is bold, colour­ful and full of mean­ing, and is pop­u­lar with col­lec­tors. His tech­nique—which in­volves ap­ply­ing hun­dreds of lay­ers of translu­cent tem­pera, a pig­ment he cre­ates in his stu­dio, to the sur­face of the can­vas— achieves a den­sity and depth that sug­gests the rit­u­al­ity of the time­con­sum­ing process through which he cre­ates his works.
