Contemporary Chinese art and wine

Contemporary Chinese art is all the rage in China and around the world. When the Shanghai Daily editorial team asked me to examine the relationship between wine and contemporary Chinese art in this week’s column, I thought why not; after all doesn’t wine qualify as art?erspective of another artistic discipline is an expansive experience that delightfully divorces us from the technicalities that often bog down wine experts and bore their audiences. Analogous to the contemporary art world, there exist wines that are overpriced and of questionable artistic quality while others are clearly inspired.

Relaxing world of wine and yoga

In life as in wines, balance is everything. Our hectic lives crave equilibrium and serenity. Therefore when my friends at Shanghai Daily informed me that this week’s iDeal topic would be yoga, I thought there must be a wonderful relationship between yoga and wine.
