I dare not look long!

This painting of a fish with a dissected belly is a “super product” of modern Chinese painting that was sold for 800,000 yuan (equivalent to 2.7 billion dong).

This work and a series of works surreal Another part is in the “Scene” series of paintings by artist Chu Tung – an artist born in 1982 who had a total auction revenue of 12.81 million yuan (nearly 44 billion VND) in 2014.

Looking at this Hyperrealism work, many viewers easily mistake it for a high-resolution photo. But this is just an oil painting created by the wonderful technique of the young artist.

The fish in the picture is displayed on a pure white plate, but the abdomen is dissected to reveal the internal organs. The fish scales, fish balls, fish eggs, fish intestines are all described in detail and vividly, the fish seems to still be quite fresh.

Chu Tung’s light handling is also very natural. The light source from above shines directly on the fish described by the artist with clear shadows on the porcelain plate and also the light reflected from the fish’s scales.

The absolute authenticity, coupled with the subject’s gore and horror, made many viewers shiver, even admitting that they did not dare to look at this picture for a long time.

The question many people see the painting ask is why did artist Chu Tung choose to paint a dead fish? According to Sohu, this painting is a contrast between the pure white plate and the dirty, filthy dead fish. The contradiction in the work is both an artistic intention to highlight the subject and to arouse explosive emotions in the viewer.
