Founding member of the Chinese avant-garde art group the "Stars", which included artists Wang Keping, Ai Weiwei, Ma Desheng and Li Shuang and was active from 1979 to 1983. This groundbreaking group of artists was the first publicly active art collective to protest against government censorship after the Cultural Revolution.
Earlier on, Huang Rui mostly created paintings that took reference from various Western artistic styles such as Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Fauvism, and Cubism. However, as his style developed, he became more experimental and began exploring different mediums including oil painting, sculpture, installation art and performance art. This is the reason his work cannot be easily classified.
Huang Rui's work is characterized by symmetry and simplicity of form, as well as by the use of primary colors. Though his work can stand alone as aesthetically pleasing; he is recognized as being a socially minded artist, and thus often a controversial artist in China. Throughout his career, he has continued to be vocal about his belief in the importance of free expression - and as a result, he has faced a large amount of censorship from the government.
Huang Rui is an artist that has the ability to combine extreme intellect with highly sensitive and personal approach. His works are finely crafted and meticulously finished. Within a minimalist exterior there hides mountains of meanings and connotations stemming from ancient Chinese philosophy, modern-day communist hypocrisy or current society's middling obsessions. There isn't just one thing that is hidden in Huang Rui's works but several, for his mind turns the pieces round and round while his ideas grow like shoots of complexity.
