Although the Chinese contemporary art once copied the patterns of Western art, it has been proved that China has its own unique cultural foundation and context. Concerning the understanding of the relationship between “Heaven and man”, “False and True”, “Freehand and Realistic”, the artistic characteristics of “Ethereal” “Freehand” “Scholarization” in Chinese art had been formed.
Chinese contemporary art emerged in the late 70’s. Fueled by “85 trendy”, it eventually became better known internationally with the promotion of Venice Biennale.
