“China’s Female Artists Quietly Emerge” from New York Times

30 07 2008

I found the above article from New York Times. It’s actually an interesting article. I never know that in China’s art scene, it’s a man’s world. I always think that it’s a little bit of both. Well, conceptually it should be both man and woman’s world, right? But now that Olympic 2008 is just around the corner. Female artists should have a chance to expose their artworks more. Take a look at this New York Times article. It’s worth the read.

8. “Spider-Man” by Anthony Lister: his work combines both aspect of superhero and art beautifully. This one is

more like a gathering storm for Spider-Man, possibly got punked by Venom.

I think this is very cute. Still, it remains in a serious sense as a black & white photo. Classic.
