Chinese Contemporary Art
Chinese contemporary art began in the late 1980’s with an explosion of new artists developing their own free style of modern contemporary art. Much of this was due to Deng XiaoPing’s modernization and opening of China that allowed Chinese artists to express themselves more freely and learn more about the art world, which existed around the world. Internet being more available accelerated the influence and it was defined as cynical realism and political pop. At Roleco Fine Art we have been collecting and selling contemporary Chinese art since 1997.
Swedish art comprises of traditional, modern and contemporary and it has its very strong relationship and influence to nature and mythology, which has its roots in Nordic Folk Art. The contemporary art scene in Sweden has a much more modern feel with much focus on technology and environment.
