The traveling German creatives Carolin and Philipp call themselves “ZONENKINDER”. While they have been making graffiti art together over the past 15 years, they began their “Tree Project” work in 2006 as way to connect Land Art and Urban Art into one. They’ve created installations in nature and public murals and decorated trees across Europe and in the United States. Their creative drive come from a deep sensitivity towards Nature combined with a passion for colors, shapes and astronomy.

This previous week, Jardin Orange received the distinguished British guests Mr. Philip Dodd (the well-known media / writer / art investor who brought V&A, a famous British art museum, to Shenzhen) and his partner Enrica.
"I've never seen an art business model quite like JO anywhere in the world. This company is offering something really unique in that it brings B2B and B2C clients to the artists and their works directly (including graphic designs and art products) while protecting their intellectual copyright interests. Many of my joint ventures would be quite interested in visiting to see it themselves .Hopefully, then, we can bring Chinese Street art to the West together," Mr. Philip said.

This first annual summer camp was aimed at building children's creative inspiration. Together, with Oki Doki Home and Yuyan Education in Guangzhou, we developed a unique six-day / five-night camp for kids. We broke out of the routine days of schooling and lessons and brought children to the art residency so that they could interact with our resident artists, to live and play around Sofunland.
For the six days / five nights' stay, we carefully designed a plethora of activities, such as: astronomy, problem-solving activities, cooking skills, outdoor games, skateboarding.
The kids reported to their parents at the end of the camp that they enjoyed new friendships, practiced gratitude and independent learning.

The universe's first Los Chicanos Childrens Park was born in Chongqing! Other Chinese real estate companies should have this attitude for developing spin-off ideas for their properties. This unique project shows how art should not be shelved, but really come into our children's playground space from a young age. Surrounding them with creative designs, their own imagination can soar!
