Chinese New Year:

In keeping with the 'Anniversary' idea for another moment, we shouldn't overlook another anniversary important to a significant part of the world's population - the Chinese New Year. Literally millions of Chinese return to their families each year to celebrate in a sea of colour.

As a part of its latest artistic drive, Apple has partnered with five young Chinese artists to reinvent classic Nianhua folk art.

On Apple’s new Made in CNY page, artists share the tools of their trade along with their art. Apple has written a small piece on each artist who together showcase five different stylings used to tell the story of the Nianhua, Chinese for ‘Year Picture.’ More interestingly, Apple is also showing individual times to meet these very artists at different Apple Stores located around China. (Tickets, anyone?) The artists have used a mix of Apple products to create the final works seen on the website, including MacBook Pros, iMacs, and iPad Pros and the Apple Pencil.

"Joyful Reunion: by Eszter Chen
"Rich Harvest" by Zhou Fan
"Peaceful Home" by Ye Hongxing

Head over to the Made in CNY page to read more on how each artist designed their work and to download free copies of each as a Mac, iPhone, or iPad wallpaper.

With one of those on my computer screen, I would be reluctant to drop icons indiscriminately onto the desktop, and I may even have to stop work just to have another look. 🙂
