New Delhi, Aug. 10 (ANI): A university president shocked everyone when he stripped bare in front of a classroom full of students so that they would have a live model to work from.
Yang Linchuan of the Sun Yat-sen Academy of Arts and Sciences shed his clothes in front of his class when the female model he had scheduled for his class to paint didn't show up, reports Englishnews.cn.
Parents and students alike suggested that even though they were fine with nude modeling, they weren't fine with a professor doing it.
Li Yinhe, China's most well-known and outspoken sexologist and social commentator, wrote a post on her blog in support of Yang.
"I really admire Yang, he's a courageous and knowledgeable artist who has truly become a model for the modern Chinese man," she said.
Yang's actions have evoked a variety of reactions, and also sparked a wider debate about nude modeling and the lines between nudity, art and pornography. (ANI)
