The Warhol-esque oil paintings of Beijing based artist Feng Zhengjie feature beautiful women with pale skin, pouty red lips, gorgeous flowing hair, stylish clothing, and oh yes—demon-like eyes. Inspired by the zeitgeist images he saw growing up in China, Zhengjie’s ‘Portrait of China’ collection incorporates elements of futuristic pop with political and commercial nostalgia. Art enthusiasts claim Zhengjie’s signature eyes are critiquing consumption and the vacuous numbness that results from consumer culture. With solo and group presentations exhibited all across the world—Korea, China, Japan, USA, France, Italy, England, Russia, and more—Zhengjie’s works translate cross culturally. His aesthetic for infusing bold and bright colors was developed well before his training at the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts. As a young boy, Zhengjie would frequently purchase the bright Chinese New Year posters made by farmers; the style and use of bright colors left a deep impression on the artist, influencing his own vision.
