Chinese contemporary artist Cheng Cheng Yi have collaborated with ArtPort for his latest limited edition screenprint entitled “Dragon Summoner”. Dragon Summoner comes in an edition of 25 and measures 70 x 56 cm. The print features Yi’s signature characters that often tell stories about adolescence and the dreams of the young generation.
Born in 1985, Cheng Cheng Yi is a contemporary artist from Beijing. Since his graduation from the prestigious Anhui Normal University in 2011, Yi has been constantly honing his technical skills and style, from gentle brush strokes and soft colours to his current unique and elaborate aesthetic, a mix between shape and bold, captivating tones.
Skillfully and meticulously executing his works with utmost care and attention to every detail, Yi plays with codes, geometric shapes and silhouettes that remind us of Damien Hirst and Yayoi Kusama, placing the figure of a boy – his own self-portrait – in an urban environment. With the use of a primary palette and monochromatic backgrounds, the artist conveys his vision of the individual living in contemporary society.
Dragon Summoner will be available on 10 November 2022, Thursday.
7PM HK Time (7AM NYC, 4AM LA, 9PM Melbourne, 12PM UK, 8PM Tokyo) at ArtPort website.
