With their domestic art market developing as fast as their economy, CHINA POWER is an innovative exploration of how Chinese artists have grabbed the world's attention with diverse and rich works of art. Once considered off-beat and exotic, Chinese contemporary art is now at its peak, achieving previously unimaginable prices at international auctions.

While China struggles to balance capitalism with communism, a new wave of modern art is flourishing in an unexpected era of artistic revolution. Everyday images of Chinese life, evocative landscapes and cityscapes juxtapose and illuminate the current social climate for creative freedom and expression.

Following the evolution of Chinese contemporary art from the ashes of the Cultural Revolution to the burgeoning gallery scene laying claim to the streets Beijing and Shanghai, CHINA POWER introduces us to the rising and established artists who live and work in China; the newly crowned 'rock stars' of the contemporary art world.

This is their World. Their Story. Their Vision.

Extras: Art gallery, Artist Bios
