Zhao Bandi's unique artistic experience
Zhao Bandi, an artist who has established his position in the art world through his oil paintings and later "kidnapped" pandas as his own artistic symbol, enjoys a reputation comparable to pandas in the art world. Since he exercised the privilege of "Panda Man" for more than ten years, he has dedicated scenes of "cross-border art" in the whole society, leaving many praises, puzzles and disputes, And anger. In June 2013, after his latest work, let the panda fly, was sent to the Chinese cinema, he officially announced that he would give up using the image and concept of panda and "the panda flies away." With such a brisk explanation, he drew an end to the strong "panda era" in his artistic career. Such a decision is indeed unexpected, just as Zhao Bandi gave up his booming painting career in the 1990s, leaving a lingering surprise to the art world. Bid farewell to the painting he called "classical period" and go through the crazy crossover "panda era", this quite independent artist in Chinese art circles has made a new interpretation of today's art with his own choice and created a strange track for his life. We can't help asking curiously, where does Zhao Bandi come from? Where will he go if he leaves the panda? (quoted from Beijing News, July 10, 2013)
Farewell to Zhao Bandi in the classical period
In the field of Chinese oil painting, Zhao Bandi is a figure with a halo. This halo did not fade because Zhao Bandi gave up painting in the 1990s. On the contrary, through people's continuous memory, it superimposed a reputation. His rare painting talent was almost recognized in academic value. On the other hand, its value is also reflected in the art market, and in the art market as a whole Under the downward trend, Zhao Bandi's oil paintings went against the tide. In the spring of 2012, his oil painting "Butterfly" produced 27.6 million yuan. In the spring of Kuangshi in June 2013, Zhao Bandi's oil painting "h. king" led the whole oil painting special show with a transaction price of 13.325 million yuan. "painting is not only a way to express my feelings, but also a way to escape from reality. The more perfect my painting is, the more fragile my heart is... I can't be more vulnerable any more." When Zhao Bandi answered why he gave up painting, he always said so. This is a logical answer given by him to give up painting. Maybe there are other real reasons. Maybe he can't explain the real reason himself. People are complex, and Zhao Bandi's complex character may be one of the answers. (quoted from Beijing News, July 10, 2013)
"Panda era" -- cross border art of socialization
Unlike Picasso from cubism into the blue period, as well as the pink period behind, all the changes take place on the canvas. After giving up his painting in the "classical period", Zhao Bandi completely separated from painting in the new period, practicing something different from his previous artistic ideas in various strange ways and media. He expanded from focusing on self feelings to social topics, and made cross-border use of various media to achieve a series of works with multi meanings and provoking social nerves. The tangle of good comments and bad comments, the duel of cheering and anger, constitute the unique landscape of Zhao Bandi's art in the Chinese art world. and all this started with his idea of "binding" the public property "Panda". Zhao Bandi: "panda is not only China's national treasure, but also China's symbol. As an individual, trying to 'own' this national symbol was just an interesting experiment at first. But when this' binding 'produced a strange chemical reaction, I felt that it was simply a door for pandas. I felt that I had the obligation to show a special landscape to Chinese society, which was metaphor and also a symbol Action, about public topics and aesthetics, I can feel that this is the art world I want to go to after I escape from vulnerability. " Since then, Zhao Bandi, who carries a panda on his head, has become a famous symbol in the art world. His panda cross-border multimedia works are well known and have attracted international attention, including the most important international exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale. the famous British Art Journal "art review" commented on Zhao Bandi's "Panda" works: standing at the intersection of Socialist propaganda art and capitalist commercial art.
One man's Olympic Games
In October 2005, the grand Tiananmen tower miraculously "stands" on the busy square in the center of Bern, the capital of Switzerland. All the main streets in Bern have "become" the second and third ring roads, East and West Zhimen and Chang'an streets of Beijing overnight. On the street square, you can often see volunteers wearing Bandi 2008 Olympic logo. China, such a distant country, Beijing 2008, and the three-year-old Olympic Games are coming to Berne overnight, just like a wonderful dream. At the Swiss National Stadium, the mayor of Boer, dressed in a Chinese tunic suit, announced the opening of the Olympic Games. Zhao Bandi held the torch high and led the volunteers into the main venue to light the Beijing Olympic flame. A crescent moon was lit into the sun and the sun and the moon were shining.
Panda fashion show
On November 4, 2007, "Zhao Bandi panda fashion show" was staged on the catwalk of China International Fashion week. In this fashion show, Zhao Bandi used the panda symbol to deduce the representative characters of Chinese society, including 33 sets of fashion, including migrant workers, miss Sanpei, star chasers, beggars, homosexuals, Internet Celebrities, judges, miss Sanpei, second wives and corrupt officials. This is the most sensational show of China International Fashion Week in the past ten years, forming both positive and negative comments. Some people applaud it as a show that vividly expresses Chinese society, and many critics think it is a vulgarization of fashion. since then, in March 2009, the panda fashion show was staged at the Tokyo palace in Paris, France, which pushed the controversy of the show to a climax. "The fashion show of betraying the country and humiliating China!" It's a very wide range of voices. Affected by the dispute, the SAIC rejected the trademark application of "Bandi Panda", and the Supreme Court also supported the decision.
Let the panda fly
Strictly speaking, Zhao Bandi set up a charity project to make the film, which is completely different from the existing way of film creation. This film has been made for three years, and the film revolves around a strange charity event. The story comes from Zhao Bandi's three years of artistic practice in real life. More than 20000 teenagers from Henan, Sichuan, Beijing, Hubei, Gansu, Taiwan and other places created paintings, sculptures, dances and music works with the theme of panda. Finally, with the donation of more than 1 million yuan from sales, they built a orphanage beside the Yellow River and a home for 60 orphans. The film not only expresses Chinese children's pursuit and love for creation, but also expresses the problems of Chinese society on another level. The whole film contains plot, record and animation, and all the main characters are real name speakers. It can be said that this is a film that can not be classified according to the existing types. the controversy of Zhao Bandi as a painter, Zhao Bandi is not controversial, but as a "kidnapping" national treasure panda, Zhao Bandi is destined to be controversial from the very beginning, which may be the difference between classical and contemporary. National treasure has become a symbol of a person, which makes many people feel uncomfortable. As Zhao Bandi continued to "use" pandas, and delivered his panda works to the society in an unconventional way, social nerves were teased. The panda fashion show has triggered protests from panda protection experts, and the relevant departments of Chengdu government have even proposed "ban mischievous panda act". Zhao Bandi's twice boycott of the Hollywood film kung fu panda has pushed him to the forefront of public opinion. Zhao's international support group many large-scale contemporary art projects are completed as "projects" by finding investors or sponsors, and so is Zhao. It is galleries, art foundations and individuals who maintain his artistic creation and constantly "burn money". When it comes to individuals, we have to mention two Swiss. One is Lawrence hebling. As the famous owner of the xiangener Gallery, he is a consistent supporter of Zhao Bandi's art projects. For example, the panda fashion show at the international fashion week was generously donated by him. Another Swiss, Uli Sigg, a former Swiss ambassador to China and a famous collector, pushed the panda Olympics and the movie let the panda fly. He is the most staunch supporter of Zhao Bandi's art in the West.
