HAN YAJUAN 韩娅娟
"Enthralled by ideas of femininity and the growing successes of women in societal circles, as there are only females being portrayed into her paintings and sculptors, it is also from her own experiences and intuition that she came to a painterly decision that women should express themselves as autonomous subjects having potential which is different but no less capable than that of their male counterparts in the shared universe."
Chinese contemporary artist Han Yajuan 韩娅娟 (1980) ranks seventh on the all-time list of artists who have grossed the most money at auction before their 30th birthday.
Han Yajuan aims to depict the lives of her generation of young Chinese women. Her kawaii style characters are a celebration of the newfound abundance of choices and chances. By juxtaposing her signature female figures with an affinity for high fashion and opulent style, she illustrates both the desires and burgeoning opportunities, which influence the new, globally minded generation of Chinese women.
