Huang Kui Biography

No matter the form, be it installation, action art, or painting, there is always a retaliatory abreaction inherent in Huang Kui's art. The origin of his works seems to be disorderly inanition. Instead the art consists of a sort of sensitivity and attention to detail which expresses a desire to fight against modern politics. His extreme messages suggest poignant revolt; still they manage to maintain goodwill. These pieces are the illustration of the developing group phenomenon, understood through an analysis of individual behavior. Huang Kui is always trying to wake your consciousness with such compelling images; he then leaves you alone with the details to decipher a deeper meaning.
