Artists and the society


If one wants to get to know a society, s/he needs to get in touch with the artists that this particular society produced and try to understand the art works created and produced by those artists who are living there. Because artists are the people who can reflect on the society, they see things and feel situations in an other way than the ordinary people do, let's say that first of all they are more instinctive about the world around them and secondly their working material is the society that they belong to and they are living in. So it is the same situation with the Chinese Society, if we engage ourselves with their art we understand their struggles, traditions, changes that they are getting through and how they feel and think in this country.
