In the early 1990’s a group of about twenty artists under the leadership of the painter and businessman Huang Jiang took up residence in the Dafen suburb of Shenzhen. The painters specialized in the making of large numbers of detailed replicas of famous oil paintings by the masters of the craft such as Van Gogh, Dali, da Vinci, Rembrandt and Warhol.
