Shen Jingdong

Shen Jingdong's take on propaganda by painting soldiers as plastic toys with plastic emotions, he's hinting at the deeper humanity and skepticism toward the government that lies beneath the facade.

The artist, born in China in 1965 and having served in the Nanjing Military for sixteen years, takes his inspiration from real life.

Check out his work on his gallery, ChinaSquare's site.
