Schultz is inspired by a painting found in his attic, which in a strange twist of fate turned out not to be just another inherited souvenir. Instead, the painting, “Chicken Under the Bamboo” (1942) was a priceless piece of art by Xu Beihong, the man considered to be the father of modern Chinese painting. The piece had been brought back home by Schultz’ grandfather who worked as a doctor in China during the civil war. Schultz’s travel to Hong Kong to sell the painting at an auction, not only gave him an appreciation of Chinese art, but also made him reflect on his own life, his ancestry and where he comes from.
