(Image: Yun Fan Shen, sp24, 2012, oil painting, 80 x 60 x 0 centimeters; ©Yun Fan Shen)   Yun Fan Shen (b. 1964, Beijing, China) I never learnt in art school about painting, and I studied by myself from books for 10 years.  In this summer of 2011, I began to learn painting in the famous Chinese painter He Daqiao Studio.  I really like the color expression. It fascinates me. Only at night time I get time to paint, although I'm very tired, but still very happy. I live and work in Beijing, China... [more]

(Image: Wang Ningde, Some Days No.54 , 2009; © Wang Ningde) Wang Ningde (b. 1972, Liao Ning province) Created over the course of the past ten years from 1999 through 2009, Wang Ningde’s "Some Days" series is some of the most iconic bodies of work to come out of the Chinese contemporary photography scene in the last decade.

(Image: Wu Yuren, those years, installation, h:194cm d:60cm; © Wu Yuren) Wu Yuren (b. 1971, Jintan City, Jiangsu Province, China) Wu Yuren’s conceptual photography, live art performances, installations and most recently oil on canvas works, illustrate his desire to “make art that both reflects and speaks to the peculiarities of the times. Wu Yuren’s recent paintings are full of visual contradictions. A cow salivates over a pizza, dumplings are devoured by snails and a panda prefers a kebab to... [more]

(Image: Liu Bo Lin, Teatro alla Scala, 2010, h: 90 x w: 120 cm; © Eli Klein Fine Art) Liu Bo Lin (b. 1973, Shandong, China) Liu Bolin became popular for his mastery at the art of camouflaging himself against virtually any background. One single photo takes up to 10 hours to prepare – Liu uses himself as a blank canvas, and with a little help from an assistant, he paints his body to merge as seamlessly as possible with what is behind him. The results are incredible – sometimes passers-by do... [more]
