Qi Zhilong is among one of the important Political Pop artists in the post-1989 China art scene. His paintings, as presented in this exhibition catalogue for his first one-man show in Hong Kong, confront the essence of a contemporary culture characterized by the conception that ‘everything is fit for consumption’. Fashionable girls posed in front of a background scattered with small images of Chairman Mao are common subjects to be found in his works. This publication includes a biography of the artist.



祁志龍是後89中國藝壇上最為矚目的政治波普藝術家之一。本圖錄展示了他首次在香港舉辦個展的作品,它們展示了畫家一貫的風格,體現了一股與「一切均可消費」的當代文化潮流抗衡的力量。另外,在毛主席像前搔首弄姿的時髦女郎也是他反復勾勒的主題之一。本圖錄亦載有祁志龍的簡歷。
