Bringing rock 'n' roll and art together

Chinese artist Zheng Wei, 33, is a die-hard fan of rock 'n' roll. He's engraved images of his favorite guitarists-as many as 185 of them-onto a nearly 6-meter-high wooden block to show respect for his idols.

The Tree, the highlight of Zheng's ongoing solo show is a documentary of guitarists born from the 1890s to the 1970s, featuring influential figures in blues, rock 'n' roll, jazz and country music. Faces of musicians appear like fruits on a "guitar tree" strung together with wires. Learn more here.
