    About this book

Collected in this art album are 112 works of refreshing originality by Jiang Bibo, a well-known Chinese woman artist. They portray the life style and folk customs of the ethnic minorities in southwestern China and express the artist's longing for her homeland during her stay overseas. New in concept and atmosphere, all her works are filled with warmth that can only be experienced by someone from the East.
Whether they are sketches, images painted from memory or her own creations, there is always a wonderful touch of modernism in them. In some of her mono-prints, in particular, she has successfully borrowed from the techniques of oil painting, traditional Chinese painting and watercolor and blended them to give her works a completely new look. Several articles written by both Chinese and foreign artists and critics are included in this collection. Commenting on her works and speaking highly of her achievement, these articles may inspire other artists to think and enhance the interest of readers in general in Jiang's works.
