Chinese van Goghs 2

Chinese van Goghs



Vincent van Gogh sold only one painting in his life, but Zhao Xiaoyong has sold over 90,000 van Gogh paintings over the past 20 years.
Zhao has lived in China, the world's fastest developing country. First from a peasant to a rural migrant worker. Then he learned how to copy iconic western paintings. Now, Zhao is in the midst of a new transition – from the copier to the original artist. Not only does China's van Gogh show how this painter fulfills his dream, but also tells the story of a man in the challenge and struggle of his journey.
