Around the Art World in 52 Weeks – Ma Dan, China

Friday, April 17 2015

Prepare to enter the fantasy world of Ma Dan through her dreamlike paintings. Ma Dan is a Chinese contemporary artist who currently works and lives in China’s Yunnan Province. Ma Dan graduated from the School of Art and Design of Yunnan University in 2011 and has had exhibitions in major cities including Beijing, Hong Kong and Paris. At first glance, her paintings seem to be simple and whimsical. If you take the time and enjoy each of her paintings here, you will discover that technically, her painterly style is anything but simple. Two of her paintings are part of the collections of The Franks-Suss Collection. 

If you painted when you were a kid, do these paintings remind you of your own paintings?
