Students In China

The ability to formulate the perfect balance of freedom and form is an art that has been admired since the beginning of time. Artists who have succeeded in finding such a balance have created influential works that have continued, to this day, to be thought of with esteem. The creation of such esteemed works has been accomplished by architects, painters, sculptors, photographers, graphic designers and others. Those artists have typically, and often times unwittingly, devoted their lives to capturing the expressions of the world in an art form most stimulating and palatable to the consumers of their expressions. Evidence of those expressions is sprinkled throughout the world in the forms of buildings, prints and other media and continues to draw the admiration and appreciation of society.
