Modern Chinoiserie Art


For some fascinating modern Chinoiserie works of art, visit the website of Stephanie Douet. This British artist creates furniture, sculpture, and objects based on historical designs and artifacts. I am especially taken with this Chinoiserie computer reclamation art. The paintings on these computer parts are taken from  Ming designs.

Great fun and very innovative -- does Stephanie do "working" computers as well?

Averill-This pictured is a work of art, but yes she does custom paint real computers.
