The works of Arzgul, a contemporary artist and creator of fiber art hair painting from Urumqi, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, appeared this month on the Thomson Reuters Display, one of the iconic screens in New York's Times Square.

In 2008, Arzgul visited a ranch of a Kazak herdsman in Xinjiang's Ili Kazak autonomous prefecture. In the herdsman's yurt, she found a painting made on a sheepskin.

At that moment, Arzgul's desire to create was awakened. She thought if she could paint animals on animal skin, the painting would appear natural, as if it were alive. She resolved then to become a hair painting artist.
