Modern Chinese Artists

Fantastical paintings from Chinese artist Fang He. I think I like Subway Underpass Bird best for its vague sense of creepiness, though Chinese Pavilion No. 1 appeals to my love of old time sci-fi illustrations. Check out similarly whimsical Zhang Gong's cute phallic creatures (NSFW), or peruse the large collection of artists at Courtyard-Gallery. (Related Chinese art posts here and here.)

Nice, reminds me a bit of Dali, my favorite artist of all time.

Reminds me more of Yves Tanguy or Giorgio de Chirico

Wow...Woman Waiting to be Unveiled makes me weepy. Thanks for these links, I'll be exploring for some time. Yay!

Nice stuff, lychee. Reminds me of a more cartoonish Remedios Varo.

In fact, it reminds me that I long ago thought of doing a Varo FPP. Now I will.
