Over the last few decades, Chinese contemporary artists have become an essential part of the international art scene, and have injected excitement, innovation, and energy. Some artists, such as Ai Weiwei, have become political art celebrities. Others, such as Zhang Xiaogang and Zeng Fanzhi, are now among the most expensive artists alive. But contemporary Chinese art is so much more, and to celebrate the Chinese new year, we’re thrilled to introduce some of the Chinese artists on Artfinder. Equipped with unrivalled skills and an urge to explore new avenues, they have impressed us not only with their art, but also with their absolute professionalism. Never before has it been easier to enjoy the Chinese art revolution.

Celebrity hair and makeup designer OscarAlexander Lundberg has adorned some of the world’s most recognisable faces, and has been featured in publications including Vogue, Harpaar’s Bazaar, Glamour, Tatler, and The Sunday Times.

We asked OscarAlexander to pick his favourite works on Artfinder, and tell us a bit about his inspirations.
When twentieth century icon Roy Lichtenstein painted comic book scenes on a scale never before seen, he lifted the comic strip style into the realm of “Fine Art”. It was a bold move that changed the course of art forever. In anticipation of Tate Modern’s major survey Lichtenstein: A Retrospective, we take a look at art inspired by the mighty comic. Ka-Boom!
