His paintings are filled with traditional Chinese elements like the Summer Palace, ancient gateways, and stone alleys.
In contrast, these ballpoint pen works by another talented young Chinese painter are all about Western pop culture.
The young man, A-Wei, is a big fan of American TV dramas and movies, as you can easily see in his art.
Using the simple colors and lines of the ballpoint pen, he recreates familiar views and faces that we once saw on the screen.
As ballpoint pen ink is permanent, this painting medium imposes strict requirements on the artist. Each stroke is irreversible. Painters must put in long a great deal of effort, and it takes huge amounts of patience.
