The purpose of this website is to share information about top Chinese contemporary artists and about the burgeoning world of Chinese contemporary art.
The site is maintained by myself, Barry Zhou, a long-term and passionate observer of the space.
I first grew passionate about the space around 2010 when I was living in Beijing as a young Mandarin student.
I would visit 798 art district regularly to meet with artists. I met with many such artists and they were generous in explaining their works, their stories and their artistic cultures.
Some of these artists included the Gao Brothers – some famous veterans of the Chinese art scene – and Xu Yong, an incredible photographer and co-creator of the 798 art district in Beijing.
