i’m jealous of yu chen

Funny, vibrant, and politically charged… Red Babies, is a stunning mixed media series by Chinese artist Yu Chen.¬†Any of those spoiled, pouting babies look familiar? I’m talking to you Mao…

Yu Chen strives for an ironical overtone to emerge through her use of military uniform and her babies physical likenesses to Chairman Mao; sometimes they are playfully rendered with sweeties and ice-creams in their chubby hands; other times they are satirically portrayed as an irked enfant terrible.
