You are watching Ren Si Hong on Little Red Art

t is impossible to fully interpret Ren Sihong's works without 2 substantial elements.

Although Chinese Political Pop Art can trace its roots from American Pop Art, the context in which the political pop works emerge is far more complex than that of the west. The Cultural Revolution, which inspired great works of political nature, was a period in history that caused great upheaval in China and Mao Zedong was synonymous with that regime. Chairman Mao is the symbol of a totalitarian regime where politics saturated all aspects of life. Essentially all the populace was affected, and this includes all forms of artistic expression.
