Visiting Zhong Biao

In September I also made my third—if I recall correctly, and I may not—visit to the Black Bridge District (黑桥) in East Beijing to visit the Sichuan painter Zhong Biao (additional post below).  I have published two articles on this painter, both of which have appeared in Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art.  Below are some photos of his studio, and segments of his recent works of art. The outside photos are of the grounds of the studio, from late afternoon to late night (the latter taken after about 10 bottles of some very fine wine).

One of the most notable aspects of this studio, common to many such structures in the Black Bridge district, is the fact that they are all slated for demolition in the coming year.
