An ongoing exhibition at Beijing's Shanshui Art Gallery is showing dozens of Chinese ink paintings and calligraphic works. More than 300 artworks tell how Chinese artists, both professionals and amateurs, have been translating traditional art forms into a modern context.
The artworks will then tour the United States, Britain and France. Wu Yiping, vice-president of the exhibition organizer American Postal Group, says through the exhibition, they hope to encourage more Chinese artists to present the excellence of Chinese art in the world. The exhibition runs until May 28 and acts as a warmup for an upcoming art blockbuster showing nearly 100 paintings of Picasso at the same venue.
