DENG XIAO PING
Deng served as China's paramount leader from 1978 until 1992. In 1994 a special series of posters, produced in his native Sichuan, was released glorifying a collection of events during his life. This series is one of the few examples of posters that can be said to advance a cult of personality for Deng. They followed on from his handling of the events of June 1989, his comeback through his Southern Tour in 1992 and his official resignation the same year.
Deng died in 1997.
