Wang's story can be representative of so many people in modern day China. It is a tale of traditional values clashing with western art, and all the human ties and emotions that comes with it. These individuals are all somehow tied together and attracted to each other in their own sense of modernism. It is especially interesting to see what emancipates each individual, and how their longing for art evolves over time after being time and time again battered by reality. China is evolving, but there are still so many stories of people like this waiting to be told, there can be so many diamonds in the rough that no one will ever notice.
