Zhong Biao was born in 1968 in the middle of the Chinese Sichuan Province. After graduating in from China’s Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied oil painting, his work has been exhibited all over the world. Actually it might not be over the top to call him China’s most famous contemporary paintor and over the years he has been taking on the visual experiences of an era as the image source of his works, including sculpture and china representing China’s past glories, the labor models of the Cultural Revolution, and such symbols of modern life as McDonalds and Boeing aircrafts.

Chinese artist Yu Chen graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 1988 where she now works as a teacher. Throughout her artistic career she has been highly productive but what I like the most are her two series called ‘Red Babies’ where chubby babies are dressed in green army garb just like Chairman Mao Zedong back in the day. Yummy!

Yocky Zhang is a Shanghai-based photographer whose work often has him travelling between Beijing and Shanghai. His first job was as an advertising copywriter, but after six years he discovered his true means of expression with a real passion for photography. His first photo exhibition appeared at Shanghai River South Arts Center in April 2009 and after that his work began appearing in ‘Architectural Digest China’, ‘GQ China’, China’s ‘Vision Magazine’ and Chinese Marie Claire. Recent new clients include Adidas, Nike, Absolut and Wolksvagen and he has just completed two photo projects with New York-based journalist Maryann Keady for her book. In other words, this is a guy you’d want to keep a look out for!

These gorgeous origami-inspired illustrations up here are the work from Chinese artist Jing Zhang.

Chen man is not a man as the name might suggest, but a young woman from Beijing who has become one of the most well-known fashion photographers in China and a regular contributor to the Chinese publications in Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, and Esquire. Her work is a combination of her skill with a camera, and her technical wizardry with a computer. She does all of her post-production image work herself, from retouching with Photoshop, to 3-D rendering with 3-D max. Impressive!
