Red Wall by Shen Hanwu
A trio of stunningly beautiful girls stand against a backdrop of blood red wall. The Red Wall an emphatic reference to the trio’s mother country, China. This is classified as a figurative painting by a Chinese artist that could be slightly critical of China as what other artists do with their art. The three are in Red Guard uniforms and could be sensed as good pals because of the ease presented by their demeanor.
The blood red background highlighted the three girls and every little details of their features endowing the picture with a surreal air. As if the three are readying for a mission and are seemingly viewed in kind of déjà vu like settings.
The artist laid unto a canvass or into a piece of paper thoughts, feelings and ideas making art a powerful media of expression; a tool to make his opinions known to anybody that would take time in interpreting and comprehending the inferred.
