The Allure of Coloring: gu wenda

The Allure of Coloring - gu wenda

The Allure of Coloring is a way to experience The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China from the comfort of your living room.

This week’s coloring page features gu wenda’s united nations: american code (1995–2019), a house-like structure composed of braided and felted human hair.


In person, the house of hair feels like it would make the most perfect imaginary tent for fifty of your most amazing friends. In these days, when haircuts are hard to come by, remember that you can always use the end of your ponytail as a paintbrush!

If you post your creations to social media, be sure to include the hashtag #theallureofcoloring so we can find your work and share it with the world!
