3D Modern Art Paintings Introduced To China By Pegasus Productions At 798 Art District
The provocative 3D modern art paintings of Canadian/American artist Anthony will have a limited two week tour of China, sponsored by Pegasus Productions
By: Pegasus Productions Ltd.
Anthony is known only to a few art galleries as the artist who never sells his work despite some generous offers that without any explanation, always get rejected. "Some people paint for money, but I paint to send a message." explained Anthony. On average, those viewing his work require 15-30 minutes to find and understand "the message" in his works which are colorful brain teasers.
Currently, the free public China viewings are tentaively scheduled for the 15th-30th of July at a famous 798 art gallery, but which one will not be disclosed until the 12th of July for security considerations after a recent incident to steal on of Anthony's paintings was accidentally, but fortunately foiled.
It is not yet know how the generally conservative Chinese art world will respond to Anthony's works, but it will be interesting to collect a few of their thoughts. Art students and professors at China's Academy of Fine Arts were recently shown photos of the "Love Or Money?" piece and the puzzled look on their faces were accompanied by five minutes of awkward silence, as each tried to guess the purpose and meaning of the three dimensional painting.
David Ben Kay, a 798 art gallery owner (Yuan Flow Gallery) for over a decade described the painting with a single word "wild". Anthony is reportedly working on a 3D painting depicting the evolution of China from recluse to economic powerhouse and it may be unveiled in Beijing next month if completed in time. It usually take Anthony 2-5 weeks to complete just one work, some of which even includes embedded LED lighting for dramatic effects.
All of Anthony's works will be shown free of charge since he refuses to work with galleries that charge an admission fee. If the public embraces this cutting edge art, Pegasus Productions will co-sponsor a local Beijing workship so Anthony can train some local CAFA students in the skills required to produce this creative mixed media art.
If you plan to be in Beijing duing mid July and want to have a look at these "unusual" works of art, you can get your free etickets by sending a request to Pegaus.Productions[
