Chinese influence climbing the top of contemporary art market

If Indian contemporary art market is the dark house in the investment world, Chinese contemporary art should be the biggest and strongest growing market. Chinese art market emerged from the mid-2000s and has showed a staggering growth on the worldwide over the last years. Its emergence has already fundamentally altered the international art trade markets. We are going to analyze the Chinese contemporary art market and introduce several influential artists.

 

Until 2013, Chinese Art Market Rebounds to $8.5 Billion through worldwide, and more than 252,000 Fine Art lots were sold in the first six months of 2016, generating a total turnover of $6.53 billion (including fees) which account for 35.5% of the Country Turnover (USD) Market Share. Additionally, China upped 18%, dominated the global Art Market in the first half of 2016 (Artprice)

 

Through the data provided from Artprice, China has knocked the U.S. off the top of the art auction market. By analyses on 3,500 auction sales globally through the first two quarters of 2016, art market data and analytics firm gave the current conclusion: China achieved the largest share of the auction market by $570 million increase in sales. The United States follows at 26.8% of the art auction market. 

 

After the years of turbulent economic climate, the huge growth of China art auction market makes bolstered the western auction houses. The combined auction totals (Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Poly Auction, and China Guardian) increased to $2.3 billion from $1.97 billion according to Artprice data.

 

Chinese contemporary artists:

 

The contemporary art in China came to the global stage from the 80s of 20th century. As the Chinese contemporary art attracted the worldwide attention especially during the 21th century with the huge amount of the international investment. Except dominant investment from China, investors around the world showed a great interest in the Chinese art market as they stand out by unique artistic expressions.

 

Realism artists:

Chinese modern and contemporary art is a fast-growing sector, especially in auction.Artist like Zhang Xiaogang, he is the top-selling Chinese artists at auction. His style is Socialist Realism and has a total of nearly $104 million in auction sales. Zhang Xiaogang’s family portraits firstly drew attention from the US in 2006. And his artwork: Bloodline Series Comrade No. 120.(1998) Exceeded the estimated price from Sotheby’s ($250,000–350,000) and achieved $979,200. Since then, his another work Bloodline: Big Family No. 3 (1995), set the current records of $12 million at Sotheby’s Hong Kong, this artwork is the 7th most expensive individual works among Chinese artists.

Another artist, Zeng Fanzhi, who has a total volume of $226 million at auction. He is the third most famous artist in China and have the similar style of Zhao Xiaogang. His artwork--Last Supper (2001) soared to $23.3 million at Sotheby’s. Tellingly, “The Last Supper” was inspired by the world famous painting by the Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci. Zeng boldly encapsulates the characters and transforms to China in the 1990s. it perhaps the most representative work in the history of contemporary Chinese art.

Abstract artists:

Artist like Zao Wou-Ki (1921-2013), who was a Chinese-French painter.His artworks have the style combined the western art theories and the techniques of oil painting. His art is deeply influenced by the Chinese traditional art style and show the dynamic colors, powerful strokes just like the music without lyrics. His auction record of RMB 89,680,000 (US$14,718,771) was set at Sotheby's, Beijing, on 1 December 2013. He had more than 160 exhibitions around the world.

The price raise almost 2000 times than 25 years before. Wu Guangzhong is the master of art in Chinese history. Wu’s artworks are more specific about the traditional Chinese art. He used much more imagery, calligraphy to reveal the paintings. From this point, his artworks look abstract and have a special feeling from Chinese Zen.

Tens of thousands of contemporary artworks sold though the world every year. "The last two decades have seen a considerable expansion in the global Contemporary art market with 55,000 works sold last year, i.e. 4.7 times more than the total for the year 2000. The expansion of the market has allowed a 1,370% increase in the volume of auction turnover over the same period (Artprice)."

 

“The demand for Contemporary art has essentially grown in response to major structural reforms of the art market triggered by globalisation and online buying, and the intensification of demand as more people become interested in acquiring artworks has pushed Contemporary art prices to new highs.”(Artprice)

      It is first and foremost a question of anatomy. In women, the urethra (the duct that connects the bladder to the urinary meatus) is shorter, making it easier for germs to testclear powdered urine travel up to the bladder. Also, bacteria from the anus can easily spread to the meatus, since the space between the two is rather small. It is said that nearly one in two women will have at least one urinary tract infection in her lifetime.
