I got my first mobile in ninth grade, my first year at a posh international school that I both loved and hated.

By Marta Millere in New Art on Saturday 26 April 2014

Over centuries, artists have liked to challenge themselves with exploring new media, colors, styles and size. Chinese artists and artisans have enjoyed toying with art and architecture of grandiose and microscopic size.
