Luo Brothers

Chinese, b. 1963, 1964, 1972 

BACK

The three Luo Brothers, Luo Wei Dong, Luo Wei Guo and Luo Wei Bing make works on paper, lacquer on wood panel, carved wood panels and statues out of lacquered resin. In all cases the works are riotous creations of kitsch. These works come from the side of the oriental nature that loves the bright lights and red lanterns that adorn every Chinese restaurant and city at festival time. The peasant handicrafts contain masses of multi-coloured flowers and fat babies that are meant to bring prosperity and success. Given this as their starting point, the three brothers have added the symbols of the new consumerism now omnipres­ent in their country as well as the symbols of the communist revolution into which they were born. 

The Luo Brothers have had solo shows in Paris, Sydney and Hong Kong and have participated in many significant international group shows at venues in the UK, Australia, Brazil, USA, France & China. 

Invited by the Red Mansion Foundation to participate in the exhibition Dream 02, supported by Visiting Arts, which brought together the works of 24 artists from mainland China, Hong Kong & Taiwan. 

Have works in the permanent collection of the Chinese Contemporary Gallery, Bei­jing, M+ Museum, Hong Kong. 

Had an auction record of US$50,295 (HK$392,301) in 2011. 

Had an auction record of US$250,000 (HK$1.95m) set for 'Welcome to the World Famous Brand' set at Sotheby's in New York.
