Designing in China today; from primary school to professional

High School

In autumn of 1991, I went to high school where we didnít have art lessons. We were very busy studying day and night. We had to learn many subjects and prepare for the university entrance exam called Gao Kao (高考). During my studies there was an important teaching conference held at our school and in order to pass the audit a temporary fine art class was arranged. That was my only fine arts lesson during my high school years. With a lack of art lessons at school I decided to study fine art from a private tutor in my spare time. I borrowed some books from the tutor and sometimes sketched portraits of my classmates (see pic).
