Published from the artist's original work. "This is a typical Chinese market in old Chinatown, right here in America. In a market like this, one could find the ingredients for the same food they ate in China and prepare it in exactly the same way," says artist Mian Situ."The market looked very similar to those in my childhood hometown in Southern China, where I was often sent on errands, so this painting was inspired by both personal childhood memories and late-19th century photographs of San Francisco.
