China's van Goghs tells the stories of peasant turned painters who are carving out different paths for themselves after years of hand copying Western masterpieces, which are sold to high street retailers around the world. While van Gogh only sold one painting in his lifetime, these production line painters have sold van Goghs in the thousands. But van Gogh represents more than just the livelihoods of these painter workers; his art, life and legend motivates them to fulfill their own dreams. Their journey is emblematic of of China’s Dream for the 21st Century: to go from ‘Made in China’ to ‘Created in China’
