IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, CHINESE ART IS HOT RIGHT NOW. There are some extraordinary contemporary artists emerging to the the world after years of obscurity. These artists are dealing with issues such as social and political freedoms, materialistic society, migrant workers, pop culture and many other things. It is rare to peer inside an artists studio—so when I discovered that photographer Gautier DeBlonde was sent by the on-line magazine Wallpaper to shoot their creative habitats—I thought it would be a great idea to share with you. One thing is for sure, there is no lack of spacious accommodations there—not by the looks of these photos. See more Chinese artists studios at Wallpaper.

Loved the nudes in the snowfall; not because of the subject, but for the unexpected juxtaposition of man and nature.

I saw China Gold, an exhibit of modern Chinese artists, in Paris last fall and I agree they are hot.
