Female artists, no more obscure

Despite picturing herself as a boy in her works, Peng rarely found any special obstacles to being a female artist.

"According to my experience, we women artists get similar respect and achievements with males in China, compared to other Asian countries," said Peng.

"Being a woman can also let your works get special attention due to the feminine elements they may have, yet it depends. In some fields, people still think that male artists might perform better than women. For example, a master of traditional Chinese painting is often pictured as an old man in people's mind," said Peng.
