‘Face-Off’ by Xue Jiye

Wed, May 24, 23 / James BDP

This week we are very excited to release the iconic ‘Face-Off’ by Xue Jiye as a limited edition print. Made (in)famous by memetic dissemination, the image has become ubiquitous in internet culture, and is in fact part of a brilliant larger body of work exploring ideas of identity and self-image. There will be more from this series  to come through Black Dragon Press. 

For now we are finally making this image available outside of China with a premium quality reproduction on museum grade paper and available in two sizes. A regular limited edition of 300 copies (avialble framed) and a large-format variant limited edition of just 30 copies which includes a signed and embossed certificate of authenticity

Both editions of ‘Face-Off’ will go on sale this Friday at 5pm UK time exclusively from our website

As always, If you'd like a reminder of when the prints go on sale you can sign up to our mailing list to receive an e-mail alert the moment they are released.
