Wang Qingsong, a Chinese painter and photographer, is gaining huge buzz. His large, elaborate photography
has been sold to many collectors for sometimes over $800,000 like the one for “Follow me.” And now the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles has purchased three prints by Wang.

Wang is an actor in each scene, a witness of his time, and a new brand name in the modern world of photography.

The artist transmits his views of issues concerning economic development of modern China and its relationship to Western culture. His work is photographic Storytelling based on iconic symbolic representations of Western culture in contrast with Communist Chinese art and traditions.

American stereotypes blend in with reflections on an aspect of the current situation of Chinese society.
