Just Love by Mr. Jiji, the alias for Beijing-based artist Fu Hang, is a shocking art series for more reasons than one. First of all, it depicts age-old nemeses as oddly affectionate. Secondly, some are more affectionate than others, forgoing friendship for something a little more serious. Nevertheless, whether its Skeletor and He-Man hugging it out like school playmates or Yoda getting a little freaky with a stormtrooper, Just Love by Mr. Jiji will have people's jaws dropping in no time.

Clearly a fan of dirty humor, Just Love by Mr. Jiji solidifies the artist's belief that "irony is a key feature of art." He speculates, "Maybe Just Love is the ultimate essence of Hu Jintao's political mantra of a hexie shehui, the idea of China as a 'harmonious society' where people smoothly welcome development as a source of a broader welfare, where everybody loves each other."
