Limited-edition works by contemporary Chinese artists gain global appeal. Chen Nan reports.

The limited-edition works of some of China's hottest contemporary artists not only captivate domestic art consumers' interest but also shine at international art shows.

The Ullens Center for Contemporary Art and UCCA Store will bring 28 works by 13 contemporary Chinese artists to the Armory Show for the first time. They include Liu Xiaodong's series of seven limited-edition lithographs, which were inspired by his popular 2011 UCCA solo exhibition Hometown Boy; Zhang Xiaogang's lithographs Threads of Blood, Planche No 14 and Comrades with Red Baby, Planche No 6; and Yang Maoyuan's painting Extinction Reincarnation Series, Zebra.

The latest series of limited-edition prints - As the Days Go By, from Yu Hong, one of China's most important women artists - will also be displayed in the United States for the first time.

Held from March 7 to 10, the Armory Show is New York's biggest art fair and among world's most prominent. This year will mark its 100th staging.

"Worldwide art shows are important for us to premiere contemporary Chinese artists and their works," UCCA Store director Xue Mei says.

"Artists flock to them, and so does the public."

The store is China's first publisher and retailer of limited-edition artworks.
