About swipxa:

Hello, everyone. I am Zhang from China- a paper artist.
I do paper-cut and some paintings.

Learn more details abuot Papercut in China,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_paper_cutting

As a child I started to learn these from my grand parents, Ileanrt cutting from grandma, and painting from grandpa. At that times,10 years ago, when they were still with me. They were teachers in an art school and spent their time in their last days on the art they are obssessed with. They lived on them, so it was actually a family business, they had a shop along the art street in downtown xi'an.

Well as time goes,thing changed. They passed away in same month when I thought I still didnt finish the "Course" 7 years ago. Now the family members are like scattered sands, busy with all so called "Careers" everywhere of the country/world. And cutting and paintings are not the family business anymore as no one would be able and like to carry it on, and as it's not so popular , especially in China. So few people like this old tradition anymore, especially among the young people.

    798 Dashanzi Art District in Beijing was excellent. By the way my picture was taken in Beijing last summer.
