25 Contemporary Chinese Artists You Need to Know

Sui Jianguo

Medium: Sculpture

Based in: Beijing

Sui Jianguo's conceptual sculpture uses objects and imagery from everyday life. His Made in China series uses those ubiquitous words and the figure of a toy dinosaur to explore his homeland's gargantuan presence in global commerce. He also deals with the present status of cultural symbols from the past through his disembodied Mao Suits or an ancient Greek Discobolus dressed in a modern business suit.
