As the prominent figure of the Stars Group, Huang Rui spearheaded the contemporary art movement in China. His rebellious spirit and independent creativity have impacted the influential traditional thinking and system pressure. His art works are the most unique and peculiar, but at the same time they are filled with critical thinking towards the nature of art. The catalogue Space Structure is a review of Huang Rui s early abstract paintings between 1983 to 1986, which examines the significance of abstraction in China and implies that the role of abstraction can be best defined by the Chinese Language.

About the Author:

Huang Rui is a contemporary artist who creates multi-dimensional installations and performance works. He is the founder of the Stars Group and the 798 Art District. He was born in Beijing, China in 1952. He currently lives and works in Beijing. Huang Rui is one of China s most respected and controversial contemporary artists. An original founder of the avant-garde art group, the Stars, in 1979, he is considered one of the founding members of China s contemporary art movement. In the 1990s, at a time when there were no public spaces for displaying contemporary art, he was among the few who launched the concept of apartment exhibitions. After spending 14 years in Japan, Huang Rui returned to Beijing and became one of the main initiators and advocates of the 798 Art District, which has since become the symbol of the success of contemporary art in China. It is hard to categorise Huang Rui s art. Over the years, his work has taken on many forms. Most of them are characterised by a spirit of rebelliousness and an interest in exploring the human condition in the face of the impenetrable walls of authority. In his art, he often approaches grim issues with a playful use of words. His artwork can be very symbolic, and often uses simple and direct slogans for an ironic and humorous effect. With geometric clarity and symmetry, as well as a consistent reliance on primary colours, all of Huang Rui s pieces stand alone as objects of beauty. His body of work reflects the concerns of a highly socially engaged artist through satires of reality and references to history.
