Fu Wenjun


Fu Wenjun (b.1955) is a Chinese contemporary artist. He works on conceptual photography, installation art, sculpture and oil painting. Currently he lives and works at Chongqing, China.

Fu is one of today’s legends of contemporary photography, who has developed the unique «digital pictorial photography» style. 

After applying a lavish use of ink on the images, he forms a 3’ x 3’ grid of raised squares that reflect both shadow and space, further expanding the primary inked image. 

The effect of layering found in much of Fu Wenjun’s art is an example of how he strives to break photographic norms. For him, a photograph is not merely a depiction to be restricted to two dimensions, as the image can be dissected and expanded so as to interact with space and light in the creation of new artistic perspectives. 

His work brings together the practical aspect of photography with the aesthetic nature of other forms of visual arts. By demonstrating the complementary relationship of photographs and other modes of artistic practice, Fu Wenjun transforms what may seem to be an inaccessible message into a highly approachable concept that can trigger critical thought about history and humanity.

His solo exhibitions were were held at the Museu Europeu de Arte Moderno (Barcelona), the National Art Museum of China (Beijing), the Old Summer Palace Museum (Beijing), the Today Art Museum (Beijing), the United Nations Headquarters (New York), the Guangdong Museum of Art (Guangzhou) and other international art organisations.

Fu Wenjun's works reside in permanent collections of Museu Europeu de Art Moderno, National Art Museum of China, Today Art Museum, the Old Summer Palace Museum, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Kennedy Family, World Council of Peoples for the United Nations, Dazu Grotto Museum, Chongqing Art Museum, Guangdong Museum of Art, Société Nationale des Beaux Arts of France, Egypt Ahmed Shawki Museum and other significant organizations and collectors.


傅文君(1955年生)是中国当代艺术家。他从事概念摄影,装置艺术,雕塑和油画研究。目前,他在中国重庆生活和工作。 傅是当今当代摄影界的传奇人物之一,他开发了独特的“数字图片摄影”风格。 在图像上大量使用墨水后,他形成了一个3'x 3'的凸起正方形网格,既可以反射阴影也可以反射空间,从而进一步扩展了主着墨图像。 傅文俊在许多艺术作品中发现的分层效果是他努力打破摄影规范的一个例子。对他而言,照片不仅限于二维,还可以对其进行剖析和扩展,以便与空间和光线互动,从而创造出新的艺术视角。 他的作品将摄影的实用性与其他形式的视觉艺术的美学本质融合在一起。通过展示照片与其他艺术实践模式之间的互补关系,傅文俊将看似无法获得的信息转化为高度平易近人的概念,可以引发对历史和人类的批判性思考。 他的个展曾在欧洲现代艺术博物馆(巴塞罗那),中国国家美术馆(北京),颐和园博物馆(北京),今日美术馆(北京),联合国总部(新馆)举行。纽约),广东美术馆(广州)和其他国际艺术组织。 傅文俊的作品常驻欧洲现代艺术博物馆,中国国家美术馆,今日美术馆,颐和园博物馆,东京大都会美术馆,肯尼迪家族,联合国世界人民理事会,大足石窟博物馆的永久收藏品。 ,重庆美术馆,广东美术馆,法国国家美术学院,埃及艾哈迈德·霍克博物馆和其他重要组织和收藏家。
