An art book from a young female artist in mainland China. Her work may well remind you of Manu Arenas.
From the publisher:
Born in the 1990s in Guangdong, in the south of China, Zao Dao is one of the youngest artists of the Chinese avant-garde. A virtuoso artist and illustrator, her talent as a watercolor artist is already unanimously recognized in China. She began publishing her drawings on the Internet in 2011. She has a very original style mixing the traditional elements of Chinese painting with a great modern graphic, with textural effects in the choice of her papers. Under her brush, the characters she creates sometimes give the impression that she is a rebellious and marginal teenager, but her quest for freedom remains her first pledge of creativity.
The young Zao Dao opens her day-to-day drawing books and dazzles us with its talent as a watercolourist, its light and virtuoso way of passing from one style to the other in spontaneity.
In these notebooks, there are hints of future comic strips from the artist.
