Great Chinese Art Revolution

Somewhat belatedly, I saw this documentary on Chinese art and the runaway success of Chinese artists in the art world since the 80s.

My favourite discoveries were two artists who worked fairly traditionally in ink, Chen Shaoxiong and Qui Anxiong.

I still love artists the best, who can really really draw.

Qui Anxiong was inspired by the escapist old fashioned world of ink brush cartoons that he grew up with on tv.

Check out this brush and ink animation. Watching it is a certain cure for stress.
