QuestionIt'd be SO cool to see an exhibit of Chinese propaganda posters that illustrate mundane activities! Also, whoever runs this Tumblr, you're doing a great job. I used to play at the Asian Art Museum with Gamelan Sekar Jaya and it was one of my favorite museums in town. Answer

We’ll be sure to pass your comment onto your curators, and well, from a personal perspective, I think it’s a swell exhibition idea. 

Thanks a ton for the positive feedback about the Tumblr. Can’t really tell you how much it makes my / our day! Hope you can make it back to the museum one of these days. Cheers…<3

Love, love, love when our world collides with sci-fi. Here is Giger’s iconic Alien (RIP, Giger) depicted in traditional brush painting style, supposedly by Qi Baishi. Baishi was an acclaimed artist credited with transforming the brush art of China’s educated elite into a more universal art form embraced by all social backgrounds. In fact, we recently just wrapped up The Carved Brush, an exhibition of Baishi’s artworks!

Anyway, here’s some backstory on this fantastic painting.
