Yaoliang Liu is a 49-year-old painter that lives in Dafen, a small village on the outskirts of Shenzhen famous for being the world hub of painting reproduction. Here scores of painters work reproducing anything from Leonardo’s Mona Lisa to Warhol’s Marilyn from Van Gogh’s Sunflowers to classic Chinese art. Most copies are ordered trough internet where clients can choose the original to be reproduced, the size, the frame and even change the colors of the original to better suit particular needs. It is a real industry that even copies and produces in an assembly line manner with some artists specialize in one area of the painting (like the sky in Van Gogh’s Starry Night). Liu reproduces Picasso’s daily and cannot quantify how many he has made in his career. #picasso #dafen #china #pablopicasso #reproduction #shenzhen #art #cubism #fake #painting
