My dad sent me this video link the other day to this fab Chinese artist working out of Beijing...
Check it out! it's so work the click -----> Liu Bolin aka "The Invisible Man"
Also check out his info and photos of his work on artnet = yum!
As someone who has been to Beijing and seen the change he addresses taking place first-hand, his work seems to be something that can really speak to China right now, as well as our ever changing world. With China's history of war, warlords, cultural revolution, to communism, holding to the past while moving forward is a constant push and pull for all people. Also, Beijing has a really influential and active art community, if you didn't know.
Thanks for the link, Dad!
yay for art!
