Art & Stage

Suzhou has a long history of refinement. It has been a center for visual and performing arts for centuries while Shanghai and Singapore were still muddy backwaters and mangrove swamps. The city’s is renowned for its paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and crafts such as silk embroidery, carpentry and jade carving. There has been a renaissance over the last five years supported by the demand for well-appointed offices, sophisticated restaurants and decorations for the homes of arriving expat families and a rising middle class who have flocked to the new housing estates and have walls to decorate and floor space to cover.
