Total weight: 5# - measurements: 9 x 12 x 3.25

Description: HUANG YAOb. China, 1917 - d. Kuala Lumpur, 1987 KAMPUNG LIFE 偕行 , 1980Signed and dated in Chinese with seal (upper right), Chinese seal (lower left)Ink & colour on rice paper mounted on scroll47cm x 37cmDeriving from Huang Yao's Nanyang series, Kampung Life is executed in his unique Chinese ink brushwork - bold lines of strokes in varying degree and intensity - illustrating life in the village for a mother and her two children. Red ink wash is applied liberally on the background portraying the morning sky when the family is set to start their day outdoors in the sun. Huang Yao's ancestor can be traced to Huang Xiang, a filial son of the Eastern Han Dynasty and through his father, Huang Hanzhong, he was taught the traditional Chinese arts of calligraphy, painting, classical literature, philology, history and philosophy. He was raised in an environment that strongly appreciates arts and culture. In 1935, Huang Yao became Art Editor of the Shanghai Post and drew a huge following with his cartoon character, Niubizi, which had also become his nom de plume from 1934 to 1956. He had written and published numerous educational books namely A Chinese Soldier (1941) for the army during the war in China, Ten Talks on Niubizi for art classes in schools which was later translated into Malay language as Eight Talks on Niubizi, Chongqing in Cartoon (1943) and many more. He travelled extensively during his lifetime, leaving China for Vietnam before moving to Thailand, Singapore and finally settling down in Malaysia. His legacy has seen a great resurgence since his retrospective exhibition in Singapore and Shanghai, China in 2001 and 2011 respectively. More major museums are including works of Huang Yao into their list of pantheons. They include the British Museum, Ashmolen Museum, the National Palace Museum of Taiwan and the Shanghai Museum in China. A special memorial show titled The Remarkable Guest of Malaya was displayed at the National Visual Arts Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 2013.

The sculpture has a cane frame with vegetable fiber paste over-modeling for the body and is decorated with three-color pigment painting. The head is possibly an over-modeled skull of an ancestor, the hair is of spider-web. Many cultures of the South Pacific see the head as the seat of the human soul. Thus some tribes keep the head of their lost ones as a relic in the form of these so-called rambaramp figures. The life-sized figures were only created for men of a high social rank and displayed in the men's house. Painted ornaments and patterns are intended to show the identity and status of the deceased. It was believed that the spirits of the dead could live on in these figures. The figure is mounted on a modern base.The figure is in good condition. The body shows cracks and minor losses due to the nature of the material. The figure measures approx. 142 cm in height.

Rendered in Phai's representational style,Opera Cheo is expressed in a minimal palette of bold red, black and white. Bui Xuan Phai was enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts d'Indochine, Hanoi in 1941 and graduated from the resistance school when it was moved to Viet Bac in 1945. He opened a studio in his parents' house in Hanoi in 1952 where he sketched portraits of his family, still-lifes and the streets of Hanoi instead of producing Propaganda Art, which was meant for national cause at the time.

He also used various mediums like oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and crayon. Phai's first solo exhibition was held in 1984 where 108 of his works were displayed.
