An on-going conversation with Gordon Cheung


Gordon Cheung in his studio, London More than I year ago I first visited Gordon Cheung’s studio. The British-Chinese artist lives and works in London where he grew up.

His series of tulip paintings – referring to the tulip mania which took  place in Holland in the 15th century – placed on the Financial Times stock listing pages, caught my attention in 2012.

In the meanwhile he has shown his work at several places, such as at Frieze London 2012 and only recently at Art Basel Miami 2013.

I talked with him about the personal and financial value of his art, and about his perception of artists’ skyrocketing art prices. We also discussed his latest work on city construction in China and the speculative side of Chinese art.

 

Enjoy reading a series of my conversation with Gordon Cheung from November 2013.

Part 1 is to follow shortly …
