Oil painting copy shop 中国油画村


Could this be the most important and expensive collection of masterpieces ever?

Actually no. In fact, it's a workshop in Dafen in southern China where more than half of the world's oil paintings are mass-produced.

Millions of replicas of Van Goghs, Monets, and Picassos are exported, generating billions in revenue for these painters who were once farmers or migrant workers.

But because of online competition, these artists are starting to concentrate on producing original pieces of art.
