The new work of “war wolf painter” online review flopped, accused of being like a sarcastic Chinese Communist class

Recently, the new work of “War Wolf Painter” Uhe Kirin, the author of “Division of Peace”, a work that sparked international controversy between China and Australia, has once again triggered online buzz. This time, netizens pointed out that the new work looked like a satire of the old Chinese Communist Party’s poverty and backwardness, and that his pink persona was “going to be subverted”.

On May 20, “Wuhe Qilin” released his new work on Weibo, with the tagline, “A poster in collaboration with Tmall #HelloNewLife, dedicated to everyone who pursues a new life.”

It is reported that each floor from top to bottom in the painting represents the post-00s, post-90s, post-80s and post-70s, etc. He himself commented, “The floors below were once the sunniest and most beautiful life ten, twenty and thirty years ago, only that the times are progressing, and as time goes by, there will be a new life on the next floor, and the floors will get higher and higher, and life will also more and more progressive.”

However, some netizens said that looking at this work alone, it looks like the glory is all on the topmost floor of the silo, and the further down the darker and poorer and more backward, “it’s simply a microcosm of Chinese society.”

Many other netizens commented from multiple channels that the portrait “alludes to the current social microcosm: a seemingly opulent and grand impression of the city, overriding the dirty and crowded old community, in fact, does not solve the basic problems”, and its meaning is like implying that “false prosperity covers up the This kind of prosperity is not sustainable and extremely unsafe because it does not solve the fundamental problems.”

“This person is quite talented”, “sarcastic about the solidification of the class in our dynasty, which is punishable”.

“striving to be a human being, the epitome of Chinese society” and “like a big prison”.

“Before, someone else said that the UHG Kirin only satirizes foreign countries, not domestic. Now didn’t he draw it: the glamour of the upper level and the crowdedness of the lower level, the only thing missing is the stairs from the lower level to the upper level”, “There is something indescribable about this picture”.

Some netizens also said that the work “resonates widely beyond the author’s original intention: there are really a lot of people who are looking at this work and still live in the state of the layers below the picture for a long time.”

In the face of many questions, Uhe Kirin said this work is a commercial illustration, the idea and elements are the A-party Tmall out, he “just help to enrich and realize the picture”. After that, he invited everyone to help him “dispel the rumors”.

After the controversy over his new work “Hello New Life”, mainland netizens commented that it seems that he really can’t draw domestic current affairs, as soon as he does, “any subject matter is like satire”.

On November 30 last year, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian reprinted his cartoon “The Division of Peace”, which satirized the Australian Defence Force’s war crimes allegations. The cartoon was a satire of the Australian Defence Force’s war crimes allegations, prompting strong protests and condemnation from Australian Prime Minister Morrison. The cartoon was subsequently reprinted by Uhe Kirin as a satirical cartoon related to Morrison. Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Chinese tabloid Global Times, praised “the cartoonist’s response as a slap in the face to Australian Prime Minister Morrison”. Since then, Uhe Kirin’s work has been repeatedly picked up by the Chinese Communist Party’s official media and republished in the social media.

In response to his painting, the Australian Daily Telegraph published a front-page photo of tank men in Tiananmen Square on December 1, with the caption “We are appalled by the killing of civilians and students by the Chinese (Communist) Liberation Army, and we strongly condemn such acts and call for them to be held accountable. At the end of the article, it also states, “This photo is real! (and not a cartoon)”. After this, relations between China and Australia continued to decline rapidly because of the “Xinjiang cotton” and other issues.
