Art in China: Monsters of New York Comes to Beijing

01/23/2015

The popular “Monsters of New York” series, drawings created by Sadi Tekin, a New York-based designer and illustrator, where he draws colorful and whimsical monsters onto photos of cities, is coming to Beijing. A new photo contest put on by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development asks entrants to share their Beijing photos with the hastag #WeHeartBeijing. Artists and students are then invited to adapt the photos as they see fit to create a new entry. Monsters of New York will take the lead; so far MoNY has shared a photo of the Forbidden City in Beijing with a friendly red monster taking a selfie with an ancient lion statue. Users who submit photos to the contest (whether a photo they took in Beijing or one they’ve adapted) via Facebook or Instagram with the #WeHeartBeijing hashtag will be entered for a chance to win two round-trip tickets and accommodations in Beijing. The city of Beijing continues to be at the forefront of culture and art, and hopes that engagement on social media will bolster this creativity and exchange.
