You may have noticed this cushions at the end of my last post.
They feature artwork I'm sure you recognize, too. The artwork is by Vladimir Tretchikoff, a Russian artist who lived in South Africa for many years. His work gained notoriety as the epitome of kitsch but it was exhibited all over the world, and sold in the millions. Personally, I remember learning to do the locomotion with my best buddy in grade 4 under a Tretchi painting at her parents' house. They were everywhere.
I noticed this article a couple weeks ago on the Mail & Guardian website, about the woman who says she is the face of the Chinese Girl. Interesting reading.
