798 Art Zone

I kept on reading about this place in other travellers’ “things to do” but it is seriously.off the beaten track so I’ve been putting it off. But today had to be the day because I’ve run out of other things to do. You can only see so much temples.

It is described as an art area in a previous munitions factory where.all the arties hangout. It was really great and was so much like Woodstock in Cape Town. A very welcome break from the rest of Beiijing. The environment was great but the art was average. There was one person though who was world class. He makes pieces out of molten copper (Im sure he gets his copper from Soweto) and then gilds the leaves. You have to see it to appreciate it. His name is below – look him up. Also, can you see the price RMB 200 000!
