Huang Rui
Huang Rui, (b. 1952, Beijing), is one of China’s most highly regarded artists and is one of the main protagonists of the first non-conformist art groups in 1979 China. A leader of the Stars Group (Xing Xing 星星) and exhibition, he was a pivotal in the art movement that initiated some of the first free art expressions in the Post-Mao era bringing together like-minded artists such as, Wang Keping and Ma Desheng. As a seminal figure of the Dashanzi Factory 798 Art District, Huang Rui has sought to express art’s function as a reflection of society and its strength in addressing contemporary concerns, since co-organizing China’s first public art exhibition in Beijing in 1979.
