About Artist: Yue Minjun was born in 1962 in the town of Daqing in Heilongjiang, China. Yue Minjun’ family was working on an oilfield when he was young, also he taught art in oil school for a short time. In 1980, he graduated from high school, after that he went to Tian Jing National Company. In 1983, he decided to go to He Pei. He became an electrician in He Pei. He was painting and working at the same time. Normally he could both continue painting and working for 20 days. This life experience gives us a trail of why the skin color from his work is red. In the 1980s, he started painting portraits of his co-workers and the sea while he was engaged in deep-sea oil drilling. In 1989, he was inspired by a painting by Geng Jianyi at an art show in Beijing, which depicted Geng's own laughing face. In 1990, he eventually moved to Hongmiao in the Chaoyang District, Beijing, which was also home to other Chinese artists. During this period, his style of art developed out of portraits of his bohemian friends from the artists' village.
