This unique book shows why many believe China is the next "tidal wave" of opportunity for art collectors due to the sheer creative output and artistic variety now blooming from within a country where only a few decades ago such expression would have been repressed.Within the Western art world, contemporary Chinese art is the subject of intense fascination and speculation. In this book, Jon Burris profiles contemporary Chinese painters, sculptors, photographers, and conceptual artists in their studios, presenting intimate glimpses into their life and work. As a result, he offers a fascinating, lingering portrait of the contemporary Chinese art scene.From the symbolist paintings of Zhang Xiaogang to Fang Lijun and other post-Tiananmen artists, Burris details the historical, political, and cultural mimesis shaping Chinars"s contemporary artists. This is a must-have book for admirers of contemporary Chinese art.Jon Burris is the author of Beijing Days . He has served as a curator for the Christian Keesee Collection of New Russian Art, the Robert A. Hefner III Collection of Contemporary Chinese Oil Painting, and the Brett Weston Archive. He is the executive director of Untitled [Artspace] in Oklahoma City.
