Paint­ing on glass

Changjiang Weekly - - SOCIETY - By Lin Min

From paint­ing on can­vas to walls and now glass, 27-yearold Cheng Ke has tried all the kind of art works he wanted. Last year his com­pany of 30plus em­ploy­ees was listed at the Wuhan Eq­uity Ex­change Center in the Op­tics Val­ley.

Cheng be­gan learn­ing fine art at a young age. Later h e ma­jored in oil paint­ing at Hubei Univer­sity of Eco­nom­ics where he started his en­trepreneur­ship thanks to friends' rec­om­men­da­tions.

Near the end of col­lege life Cheng dis­cov­ered a huge mar­ket de­mand for high-end cus­tom­ized orig­i­nal pic­tures. He be­gan try­ing to paint on new ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing glass, cloth, board, and even brooms, about new sub­jects. When he was sat­is­fied withth e unique ef­fect of paint­ing on glass by stip­pling, depict­ing, and paint-splash­ing, Cheng set up a work­shop in Wuhan and en­trusted the mar­ket­ing to a friend in Shen­zhen. He em­ployed some un­der­class­men, who also be­came his ap­pren­tices, to work part time in the work­shop. In less than three years the out­put value of the com­pany has ex­ceeded RMB 10 mil­lion.
