Logomania (Christmas Tree) by Chen Hangfeng

Why not wish a season’s greetings to all of your visitors with a Christmas tree designed by internationally acclaimed artist Chen Hangfeng.

The Shanghai-based artist’s acrylic and light box installation mixes corporate designs with traditional Chinese patterns. Offering an insight into Chinese consumer culture, the beautiful tree is composed of neatly arranged snowflakes that are made out of brand logos.

Chen’s design reflects the growing importance of the Christmas holiday in contemporary Chinese culture. A symbol of increasing purchasing power and growing consumer desire, it is marked by big advertising campaigns that encourage people to spend money.

Chen Hangfeng was selected for the Square Mile Project in Bradford 2010 and his solo exhibition at Cartwright Hall in October 2011 was extremely well received.
