Grade 11 IB art students went in search of inspiration to a local contemporary gallery initiative Jardin Orange in SoFunLand in Shenzhen. Jardin Orange is the brain child of French graffiti artist Ceet Fouad. You can find him on instagram as ceet_fouad
Jardine Orange also serves as an artist residency – so it has a continuous stream of new cutting edge contemporary artists visiting, making art in the studios, showing in their art gallery or just coming to hang out.
One of the artists and the manager of the residency (and our tour guide.. and past SIS teacher) and prolific artist in her own right is Rebecca O’Brien. (r.obrien on instagram) Rebecca showed us around the studios – where Eddie Colla and Krayon were at work – and the gallery. Students spent some time exploring and talking with artists and.. of course, we all had time on the roof for some group instagram shots.
