I know nothing formal about Tanxuan, except that he's from Shenzhen, China and that he's got an incredible talent for drawing, with some of the most beautiful sketchbook pages I've ever laid my eyes on.
His Instagram is a constant feed of jaw dropping inspiration with drawings ranging from seductive women to odd foods to incredible overlapping cityscapes and the people within them.
Four Brazilian Artists. Four UK Artists. Three fax machines. One exhibition called "Fax Ex-Machina."
Earlier this month, the KK Outlet in the UK and POP Gallery in São Paulo simultaneously hosted a live art exchange between Brazilian and UK artists through the use of the fax machine. "High taxes and blindsided customs laws make it impractical to import and export art in and out of Brazil. Using the lo-fi means of fax machines we aim to avoid these extortionate charges and showcase young talent in and outside of Brazil."
Great concept. Great art. Simply great all around. Take a look at some of the photos from this extra cool event.
