ART LABOR Gallery is very pleased to present, in association with the Shanghai Sculpture Space, a gigantic show of new ink paintings by Shanghai artist YOU SI. In a biennale season with an enormous choice of shows to attend, this is the one seminal show which in future years you will hope not to have missed.
Known since the 80’s to insiders and early fans of the Chinese avant-garde for his radically original and contentious works, You Si went abroad for some years to New York City, where he patiently honed his craft to a point of creating something completely unique, astoundingly beautiful, and deserving of recent praise by critics from the Saatchi Gallery and respected curators such as Victoria Lu, from Shanghai MOCA.
Following on last year’s UNBOUNDED show at ART LABOR Gallery, You Si, has expanded on this theme, creating a show without restraint, limitless in its celebration of evolution, biology and sexuality, and with daring and tremendously impressive juxtaposition of colours.
