Chen Zhizhong was born in 1913 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1930s growing up. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s dominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. n Europe, Surrealism continued to be the leading artistic trend; a kind of expression and school of thought that by this time had spread worldwide. In Mexico, artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera integrated many of these ideas into their radical political ideologies to develop a innovative kind of magic realism.
