Shanzhuan Wu

Biography from Auctionata

Wu Shanzhuan was born in Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province and he is a graduate of the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou.  Being a leading figure of the Chinese Conceptual Movement of the 1980s, Wu was one of the first in China to incorporate words with a reference to pop art into his works.  Some of his most famous works are the installation Red Humour International (1986) and Selling Shrimps

In the late 1980s he moved to Europe, where he obtained a master’s degree from the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg.  After living for more than ten years in Germany and Iceland, the artist is now a resident of Shanghai.  A large retrospective of his work was hosted by the Guangdong Museum of Art in 2008.
