Feng Zhengjie


Referencing promotional imagery used by commercial billboards to sell goods through sex and desire, Chinese artist Feng Zhengjie creates large-scale paintings as a critique on the principles of capitalism. The artist’s work reduces the overt content usually found in such advertisements, allowing a streamlined version of temptation to exist without a specific product. The essence of desire is manifested through the blank-eyed ethnically ambiguous women who graphically dominate each work. Zhengjie currently lives and works in Beijing, China, and is a graduate of the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts in Sichuan Province, China. The artist has been included by the Saatchi Gallery in London and has exhibited in other notable exhibitions, including works at the National Museum of Art in Kaunas, Lithuania, and with Xin Dong CHENG’s Space for International Contemporary Art in Beijing, China.
