TIME magazine described Yue Minjun: "If you think China has a close relationship with the current and future status of the world, then this is the man to paint China."

    I’ve explored numerous media with my art over the years. This new digital frontier excites me the most as I can bring my art to life in a way that I haven’t been able to with physical media. In Web3 I can create a new engaging experience and relationship with the next generations of art collectors shaping the art world of the future.” - Yue Minjun
