Artist Profile - Liu Di

Liu Di is an artist from the little known Shanxi Province of China, where the cities are just starting to get industrialized and overpopulated. His first series here, "Animal Regulation", is a little social commentary on nature vs urban development in these cities...

Now the cool part about Liu Di, is that while his works are way beyond the realm of reality, he is actually a photographer. All of the city settings are his photographs, the animals are obviously put there afterwards, and the result is a pretty seamless mesh of two mediums.

China is on the verge of a complete artistic revolution right now, and I'm so excited to see how many amazing new artists are finally coming out of the biggest country in Asia.
