Ma Desheng

BORN IN THE PRC I was born in Beijing in 1952. It was there that I grew up, studied and stirred things up for the first half of my life. I had polio as a child, so my health was not great. Although I had two brothers and two sisters, I was often at home playing on my own; that is when I started drawing - copying illustrations and cartoons.

Send us your drawings and poems

I'm writing to talk about my dream. Since I was nine years old, I have loved drawing pictures and designing things.

When I was younger, I used to watch my sister drawing beautiful pictures. I wished I could be as talented as her some day. Later, I started to draw my own pictures.

The very unique world of Mr Red

It is very easy to associate Mr Red with his graphic novels, which are characterised by colourful illustrations and simple text. In person, the 33-year-old bespectacled Taiwanese artist comes across as boyish, happy, content and imaginative. These are also the qualities that many of his works possess.

Women artists make their mark in Bali

Balinese women have always had a leading role in traditional art, but as sculptors and painters they have been largely neglected until recently. Few felt free to paint. Those who did often did so in secret, usually learning by helping fathers and husbands who usually got the credit for the work. Women were not represented in most of the island's galleries. They did not sell abroad.

All the nudes that are fit for printing
