written on painting
|yú||Riches / Surplus|
The title of these piece, written in Chinese characters is 年年有餘 (Nián nián yǒu yú), which literally means "Year [in and] Year [out], [may you] have Enough/Riches". This is kind of a play on words, as the word "Yu" in Mandarin Chinese means to have enough, or to have riches. But it is exactly the same pronunciation as the word for "fish". So when someone says this, it sounds like they are wishing that you have fish every year forever. Because of this fact, images of fish, have come to represent "having enough" or "riches" in Chinese culture.
The rest of the characters indicate this was painted in the Autumn of 2011 and signed Li-Cheng (the artist's given name). The artist's full name is Wang Li-Cheng. I only met him once, and don't have a lot of information about him. I can say he lives in Jinan City in the Shandong Province of Northern China. His artwork speaks for itself. I should head back to Jinan and get more.
