ABOUT THE ART

According to the IMF China will earn the status of the world's biggest economic power in 2016. China is already famous for its excellent painters like Yue Minjun, Ai Weiwei, Zhang Xiaogang, Fang Lijun, Gu Wenda and Yan Pei-Ming. Created this art piece while listening to 'The Future' by Prince.

[ graphite pencil, ink and ecoline on A4 paper (Canson blanc naturel 224 g/m2) glued to light blue paper (160 g/m2)]

Part of the lyrics of 'The Future' by Prince:
"I've seen the future and it will be
I've seen the future and it works
And if there's life after, we will see
So I can't go like a jerk

Systematic overthrow of the underclass
Hollywood conjures images of the past
New world needs spiritually
That will last
I've seen the future and it will be
...
Yellow Smiley offers me X
Like he's drinking seven up
I would rather drink 6 razor blades
Razor blades from a paper cup
He can't understand, I say 2 tough
It's just that I've seen the future
And boy it's rough
...
I've seen the future and it will be
Wait a minute

Pretty pony standing on the avenue
Flashin' a loaded pistol, 2 dumb 2 be true
Somebody told him playin' cops and robbers was cool
Would our rap have been different if we only knew?
...
Systematic overthrow of the underclass
Hollywood conjures images of the past
New world needs spiritually
That will last
I've seen the future and it will be
...
"Think about the future"
