" I am a Ninja" Pop Art Portrait in Amsterdam by Shao Qi
Located in Pasadena, CA
In the infinitely complex world of contemporary art, many works serve as vehicles for thought, postural statements, and emotion. Such is the case with SHAO QI, a renowned Chinese artist who skillfully blends the political, cultural, and aesthetic in her lithographic work entitled "I am a Ninja." This piece, limited to thirty copies, numbered 21/30 in pencil and dated 2011, is a perfect example of how cross-influences can be integrated and cultural barriers broken down. Historically, ninjas were inferior warriors in feudal Japan, often recruited by samurai and governments to serve as spies. Their mysteriousness has allowed them to infiltrate contemporary popular culture, so much so that their ubiquity eventually transcends borders, internationalizing the ninja and rendering its Japanese origin a simple detail, among others, in public perception, a component of a character that has become universal. Pop art, an artistic movement of the second half of the 20th century, is known for its appropriation and subversion of consumer products and cultural icons. By hijacking elements of mass culture, pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein transformed the perception of art and its eligible subjects. The use of a ninja silhouette in "I Am a Ninja" follows this tradition, exploiting a popular symbol to reimagine it. The dynamic interplay of colors, in particular the aesthetic power of red and black, is essential. Red's radiant luminescence contrasts sharply with black's ultimate absorption, framing the work in a colorimetric face-off reminiscent of the propaganda posters of yesteryear. Red, the color of revolution, power, passion, and vitality, blends with black, shadow, and emptiness. The bold black lines that delineate the figure are reminiscent of Shepard Fairey's work under the OBEY signature. These lines convey a vibrant, primitive force akin to Russian Constructivist posters...

" I am a Mexican" Pop Art Portrait of a Man in Amsterdam by Shao Qi
Located in Pasadena, CA
In contemporary art's diverse and infinitely complex world, many works serve as vehicles for thoughts, statements, and emotions. SHAO QI, a Chinese artist born in 1987 in Shanghai, blends political, cultural, and aesthetic elements in her lithographic work titled "I am Mexican." This piece, limited to fifty copies and numbered 21/50 in pencil, dated 2011, transcends the materiality of art to explore societal palimpsests and interrogate notions of identity and globalization. The dynamic confrontation of colors, particularly the dichotomy of red and black, is essential. The radiant luminescence of red contrasts sharply with the ultimate absorption of black, framing the piece in a colorimetric standoff reminiscent of vintage propaganda posters. Red, the color of revolution and power, passion and vitality, mingles with black, the shade of shadow and void, embodying the potential for new beginnings, as French artist William Klein once proclaimed. SHAO QI employs a stylistic language that is instilled with almost raw expressiveness. The bold black strokes outlining the figure are reminiscent of Shepard Fairey's work under the OBEY signature. These black lines convey a vibrancy and primal force akin to Russian constructivist posters...
