< ﷯ 동웬성 Dong Wensheng 董文胜
The Last Gangster from Jianghu, Collectible art micro spray, 70x108cm, 2009 [Artist Note] Dong Wensheng’s work also freely crisscrosses between installation, photography and experimental films. His work frequently includes elements of Chinese tradition with a strong link to characteristics related to the region of Jiangnan. His highly individualistic pieces often transpose the viewer into a paradoxical realm that hovers between the traditional past and the contemporary present; Dong is interested in infusing his spectators within a state of tragic psychological sadness.
