Unframed 118.8x84cm Artist: Guan Yi
Guan Yi was born in the ’60s, and like many of the artists who grew up in that area he holds pure cultural ideals. In the ’80s, he was even something of an avant-garde artist himself. The logo of the 1989 China contemporary art exhibition — the “No U-Turn” sign — hangs behind his headboard. In 1993 Guan started running a business. But still, driven by his personal philosophy and rabid passion for art, he later returned to the art world. Before that, aside from in the company of business acquaintances or family members, Guan rarely mentioned his love of art. After returning to the art fold around 2000, Guan Yi has put no limitations on his art collection. In 2001 he established the “Guan Yi contemporary art museum,” with his collection being referred to by Westerners as “the best way to understand Chinese contemporary art.” In 2002, Guan collected his first installation work, Huang Yong Ping’s “World Factory” — a colossal 260 square meter rendering of the Chinese map made of metal bars. Between 2003-2005, Guan Yi collected a series of works by Huang that range from 1985-2005, 16 works in all. Soon, he had become Huang Yong Ping’s top collector.
Faux is delighted to present a unique collection of limited edition Lightboxes by Jayne Dyer
Jayne Dyer is an Australian artist based in Lisbon, Portugal and Sydney, Australia.
My international practice is hybrid, interdisciplinary and socially engaged, and address identity and otherness, particularly in reference to what we culturally and socially valued. Projects are site-specific, collaborative, and increasingly performative.
Two key projects are planned for 2019: This Savage Garden, a series of installations conceived for Adaption & Transition, Bienal do Fotografia, Porto, Portugal, to be exhibited at Palacio de Cristal Jardim; and Art Politic, to be developed at DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) & JSA (Joint Security Area), and exhibited at Suwon Museum of Art, South Korea. These continue my focus on social and environmental states of change and crisis and insinuate a fragile interiority.
Exhibition highlights include the Triennial of Photography, Hamburg, Germany (2018); Foreigners, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre, UK (2017); Tell me something, 2016 Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka; Last Things, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre, UK (2016) in collaboration with British artist Wayne Warren; Sharpness, Anna Pappas Gallery, Australia (2016); It’s closing time for gardens of the West, Palazzo Mora, 2015 Venice Biennale, with Wayne Warren; Ger to Ger, Mongolia National Art Gallery, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (2013); Unbound, Macquarie University Gallery, Sydney, Australia (2013); The protest that never ends, ARTISTERIUM 5, Tbilisi, Georgia (2012); URS27, Taipei City Urban Redevelopment initiative, Taiwan; Spill, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, Taiwan (2011); postEDEN, Today Art Museum, Beijing, China (2010); The Recycled Library, Art Space, Mackay, Australia (2009); Spare Room, Elizabeth Bay House Museum, Sydney, Australia (2007).
In 2013 I received the inaugural Individual Artist Award from Australian Federal Government for arts achievements in Asia and in 2005 a Commonwealth of Australia public service medal for contributions to arts and education. Arts agencies including the Australia Council for the Arts, Asialink Australia, DFAT, Fubon Art Foundation, Taipei Culture Foundation, the Sovereign Art Foundation, Hong Kong and the Australian High Commission, Sri Lanka, have funded major projects and residencies.

A boxed set of 4 fine bone china sinner plates by Wilson Shieh (edition of 50)
Wilson Shieh paints and draws in the gongbi, or fine-line, style of Ming dynasty painters of the seventeenth century, but his subject matter is expressed in a contemporary and humourous fashion, which is often wry and satirical. There is a timeless quality to Shieh’s images that seems to spring from another age and it is one that he suggests is intentional. Yet, simultaneously, he conforms to some extent with the tradition upon which he draws. He has an international reputation, winning the Philippe Charriol Foundation Art Competition in painting in 1997, the Prize of Excellence at the Hong Kong Art Biennial and the Asian Artists Fellowship by the Freeman Foundation through the Vermont Studio Center. His work is in the collections of many Hong Kong institutions, including the Museum of Art, the Heritage Museum, the Philippe Charriol Foundation, and the British Council, and in collections outside Hong Kong at the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane, Australia, the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, and the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Oxford. Shieh was born in 1970 into a family of traders, the third generation of Hong Kong residents in his family. He received his BFA in 1994 and his MFA in 2001, both from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is currently exhibiting at the Osage Gallery in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Limited Edition Oval Platter byMarc Standing Born in Zimbabwe, spending many years in Sydney and now based in Hong Kong, Standing's iconic and haunting paintings have developed along a complex path of progression. Driven by an innate compulsion to paint, Standing explores tension felt by a personal search for identity, embodied by complexities felt by a mass consciousness – one, which has been left with toxic traces of colonialism. Standing's works have been shown extensively throughout Australia and have also been included in prominent Australian art prizes, as well as a commission work for The Groucho Club in London, a nominee for the Sovereign Asian Art Prize, and acquired by Artbank in Australia. His work has also been exhibited in New York, London, Holland, Hong Kong, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
Faux is delighted to present a unique collection of limited edition Lightboxes by Hu Qinwu
Hu Qinwu (born 1969) was born in Shandong, China, and currently works in Beijing as a painter, photographer and printmaker.
Qinwu studied oil painting at the Yantai Normal Academy, Shandong where he graduated in 1990. He went onto attain a Masters degree in Painting from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 2008. In 2010 Qinwu taught as a guest lecturer at the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. Qinwu's choice of materials for his paintings align with the scholarly tradition of Chinese ink painting. However, Qinwu subverts the traditions of the medium through a style that aligns more closely with the aestheticisms of the Abstract movement. The concept behind his style and technique, however, is informed by Zen Buddhist philosophies and practices. Critics have noted that Qinwu's command of ink, tempera, acrylic, oil and print media signals the germination of an exciting new approach to traditional techniques and the burgeoning of an abstract style amongst a young generation of artists in Beijing.
