《Made in China》 Wei Guangqing catalogue 2007 page 200WEI Guangqing is one of the most important representatives in Chinese contemporary pop art. For him, "connecting the past and the present" functions as the principle which is generally displayed in his artpieces that combine both history and culture and the status quo. In the series entitled Made in China, there lay lots of Chinese symbols and images, as well as elements from modern visual culture. Speaking from cultural status quo in this country, the artist sophisticatedly borrows traditional resource and eliminates the opposite between East and West. Also he achieves to change the nature of language previously adopted by pop art and to present us with "contemporary" that belongs merely to China.
