Cindy Yang’s former boss described Cindy Yang as unsophisticated. I’m not sure if he was trying to protect her or throw her under the bus (I’m leaning towards the bus) but unsophisticated isn’t the way I’d describe someone who started multiple businesses, organized major events, and managed to get into Art Basel. Cindy not only had a booth exhibiting art work from her FuFu gallery, she also exhibited her own paintings under her Chinese name, Yang Li.
In the picture above, Cindy is in the center. On her right is Ah Ding, one of the artists shown by her gallery at Art Basel. The other artist, Li Zenghui, is the guy with the long white hair and plaid shirt on the left. On Cindy’s left is Sifu Zhou, a professor of mathematics at Florida International University. Next to him in the red and white cheongsam dress is Xianqin Qu, president of the Florida chapter for Chinese Peaceful Unification, the group considered to be working in concert with the Chinese Government’s United Front.
