The New Renaissance is a collage art collection for SS 2018. Inspired by both classic culture and contemporary lifestyle, the collection visualizes the contradictions between the old and new cultures in an aggressive style. The collection features 25 individual artworks and several different digital illustrations and instalments for the main motif. In addition, new single "Renaissance" by Jimmy Mansuo Zhang a.k.a JimBuffy will be dropped soon as a part of the Renaissance collection.

WHOEVER VIEWED THIS SHIT, YOU MY BITCH NOW.
AN ART COLLECTION INSPIRED BY POP ART.
"I think we're experiencing a new Renaissance era in the current century.
Life is completely changed in every way and we can never go back to what we used to.
There is a new Renaissance undergoing in this world, maybe people just don't realize."
"Wording is a type of art that explains everything with clarity.
Word itself could be neutral enough to hide its real emotions behind its meaning,
which somehow makes people wonder, think, and imagine.
Word can tell much more than it means "
"If art is not making any statement, then it is not art."
"This is not a friendly message and the collection is a mess out of mess.
We are making fun of others' weakness to levitate ourselves.
There are many ways you can use, while I chose art I guess."
-Jimmy Mansuo Zhang
"Art is a type of freedom for everyone
The notion behind this new Renaissance collection is all about having fun.
Sometimes art speaks for itself and I just want people to adapt to what they see.
It is all about making a visual statement through the artworks."
"This world is full of cliches.
So many things going on at the same time, which somehow makes me feel a little overwhelmed.
However, one good thing about art is that you can literally make fun of everyone and everything.
Why so serious? You don't have to."
"For The New Renaissance, I'm more into making statements through visuals
and challenging what we think as status quo.
Ultimately, art needs to speak up something."
"All my life, Andy Warhol has been one of the biggest inspirations to me.
But art could go further than that, if you are confident enough to see yourself as an icon,
you don't have to be Andy to Warhol.
I mean you can create your own version of Warhol. Even more than that. "
