Art Equity invites you to participate in the new release of Adam Chang's first editioned work - Mao.
Adam Chang, winner of the 2011 People's Choice award at the Archibald Prize is one of Australia's leading contemporary artists. His large canvases with iconic imagery have firmly placed him in the sights of significant collectors in Australia and Asia, particularly in his native China where he is regarded as one of the most powerful painters in the international art world.
Mao is published by Barbarian Press in association with China Link and Art Equity and printed at the acclaimed Griffith Studio in Sydney. The print edition is fittingly breaking new grounds in print making. Mao is an edition of 50 with 20 of the edition being released to the Asian and European markets.
The lack of available paintings for sale by Chang and the high prices commanded when they do come onto the market makes Mao one of the most collectable artworks at this price point in the Australian art market.
Chang is a five-time Archibald Prize finalist, two-time finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and his work has been included in both major institutional and corporate collections internationally and in Australia.
The impact of the John Coetzee portrait in the 2011 Archibald Prize (pictured above) cannot be underestimated. Announced winner of the People's Choice at the AGNSW, Chang's painting was then selected to tour the Regional Galleries where he was also awarded the People's Choice at the Tarrawarra Museum of Art and the Tweed River Regional Gallery.
Adam Chang lived through Mao's Cultural Revolution in China and acutely understands the influence the man had, not only on China, but the world. The reference to Mao in contemporary art is by no stretch a new phenomenon, with the most famous depictions being by Andy Warhol.
This edition is based on the painting by the same title which
was exhibited in a non-selling exhibition entitled Mao,
Terracotta Army & Myself, opened at China Link Gallery by
Edmund Capon AM, OBE in January this year.
