China - Wealthy Families

China - Wealthy Families

A precursor in the concept of artist's villages where one of Beijing's artists was the first to move away from the capital city. The artist, with another colleague, set up their studio on an industrial farm with on site grain silos, while maintaining the architectural decor intact. He since started a trend as other major artists followed suit. He developed a new language by creating ideograms and a Chinese alphabet by introducing forms and symbols culled from the environment, politics, globalisation and poetry. He has enjoyed enormous success. His assistants arrive from Beijing by train and then by bus where a 1km walk finally brings them to the studio. Isolation is of fundamental importance for this artist.
