Dafen, a suburb of Shenzhen, has one of the world’s largest population of artists. 
Around 10,000 employees specialise in the replication of famous western
masterpieces, or simply creating thousands of identical units for hotels and retail
outlets. Some manufacturers specialise in painting individual customer orders,
such as wedding photos, portraits, even conceptual art pieces.
