An interesting story in Sunday’s New York Times noted that Charles Saatchi, the British collector who discovered the likes of Damien Hirst and Rachel Whiteread, has started a Chinese website for burgeoning artists.

It is a Mandarin version of Stuart (short for Student Art), an arm of his gallery’s website where emerging artists can show and sell their work. After the UK version of Stuart launched in December, Saatchi noticed many young Chinese students are posting artwork on it.

It seems that Chinese youth, new to democratic freedoms, are trying to find their individual voices–many through art.
