About Huang Yin and Her Artworks

– Being brought up under the red banner, like many other Chinese contemporary artists from the 1970s, Huang Yin went through the enormous change of China’s historical cross-sections – the Mao era.

– The iconic symbol in Huang Yin’s paintings are often a single or a group of little boys, in their blue trousers, white shirts and red scarves. This is the most typical image of pupils in the Mao era.

– The little boys also remind the audience of the famous children fables, The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi and The Lord of Flies by William Golding. The story of Pinocchio suggests that lies are present; people who know the history about Mao know the reasons and background of the lies.
