0802 Red Icon

Calligraphy has remained a potent force in Chinese life up to the present. During the following dynasties, calligraphy continued to be a central art of the literati. During the twentieth century, the social and political uses of calligraphy have been radically changed. Calligraphy is not only an art associated primarily with the traditional scholarly elite but it has been also employed as a tool of revolution.
Mao Tse-tung (毛泽东) was not only the Great Chairman but also he was a poet and a great calligrapher with a highly personal style called “Mao-style”. In his calligraphic works he had the peculiar habit of never put the seals on them and therefore, in Red Icon, I liked to represent him like a popart icon using only seals which, in this case, are of both Eastern and Western.
