China Girl

China Girl by Andy Slater

This ink drawing is 40cm high by 25cm wide and depicts a Chinese girl on her wedding day. It was copied from a picture in a magazine where it accompanied an article about the way in which elements of 20th century culture is being used along side the more traditional culture. The girls wedding outfit for example is very traditional... with the exception of the her sunglasses.

While I'm here, I'd like to thank my friend Cary for correcting the grey scales on this picture so that my photo (which was rather grey) looks more like the original artwork. Cary is an artist and writer. To open up a new browser window and visit his rather cool web site, just click here.
