ARTPIQ proudly presents this painting, "The mantis stalks the cicada" by Shipei Wang, available for purchase at 530 EUR. Original Painting: Acrylic on stretched Habotai silk.

Artist about the artwork: "This painting is an ode to the ancient idiom 'The mantis stalks the cicadas, being unaware of the oriole behind'. It refers to and warns about being so focused on an immediate and narrow goal that one neglects the potentially greater danger that will arise. This proverb and its iconoclastic nature proves increasingly more significant during the political uncertainty and divisions arising during Brexit in the UK, the normalisation of fake news on social media, and the tactical promises of quick fixes political figures employ to sway political tendencies."

My experience with ARTPIQ was simply amazing: at every moment from order to delivery, they gave me the feeling I was acquiring something very special and they took meticulous care of everything!

I just love the opportunity of buying art by artists that I would have never met without Artpiq. I live in Munich and now own a piece of art by a London based artist that just graduated. How cool is that?
