Styles are all over the board, from primitive to polished, cartoony to ethereal. I can’t say the art is of the quality that we are used to here in the West, but that’s not to say that the work is not original and thought-provoking. This has to be viewed in context, coming from an authoritarian country that could arrest any of these creators for what they have drawn here!
