Hong Xiao

Biography from 33 Auction

Born in China in 1966, Xiao Hong is a rising contemporary artist who shot to fame for his "Intellectual Youth" series.  Unlike most artists, Xiao's artistic calling started late, in 1990 he graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Inner-Mongolia Normal University.  In early 1996, he became a professional full-time artist.

Xiao's works have been extensively exhibited and collected in Singapore, Beijing, New York and in various parts of the world.  The murals of Dun Huang was the inspiration for Xiao's most notable iconic portraiture paintings, 'Face Series', he merge images from murals with portraits then integrating Cultural Revolution scenes.  He then ventures into exploring people's fragmented memories that draws the viewer closer to the fascinating glaze revealing the startling narrations within the portraits.  Each scene has been deftly manipulated to meld with each other creating this imaginative scenario that allows the viewer to envision the narrations coming to life.
