In his mid-80s Post-Classical series, Wang Guangyi was telling an art historian myth; in the late-80s Mao Zedong works he was telling the myth of a leader. In the 1990s he began to tell a myth about ordinary people living in a specific political and economic environment; this was the beginning of his Great Criticism series. From 2000 onwards, Wang has also started to experiment with installation art and sculpture. The present monograph provides an up-to-date sum up of Wang Guangyi's artistic development from the 1980s to the year 2002. Articles written on his art as well as interview are featured here, together with an artist biography.
