Né en 1962 à Daqing, en Chine, Yue Minjun vit et travaille à Pékin. Icône de l’art contemporain, il est le représentant le plus connu des jeunes artistes chinois du « réalisme cynique ». L’artiste s’est fait connaître pour ses œuvres monumentales dont le thème central est le rire, chargé de différents sens et lui permettant de « cacher son impuissance » ou de caricaturer l’uniformisation de la société chinoise. Yue Minjun offre des toiles ambigües, peuplées de personnages aux visages ouverts sur d’inquiétants sourires.
