‘Chinese Style’

The Embassy of The People’s Republic of China in Colombo organized the exhibition, ‘Chinese style’ as part of the National Day ceremonies of the People’s Republic of China, held in the months, September and October.

‘Chinese style’, an exhibition of modern water-ink paintings was held at the China Cultural Centre, in association with Art news of China and Central Digital TV Chinese Art Channel, from October 25 to November 3.

It was hosted by The China Cultural Centre in Sri Lanka and the China National Academy of Paintings (CNAP).

The CNAP is the leader in developing Chinese Art and Art exchanges with other countries. This is an outcome of the program “Chinese Style-CNAP Masterpieces of Fine Arts International Touring Exhibition”, which has toured countries such as US, France, UK, Germany, Russia, Korea, Japan, Bulgaria, Thailand, Mauritius and Malta.

The artists involved in the exhibition were representatives of contemporary Chinese art circles.The portrayals depicted the history of Chinese innovation, inheritance and development. Chinese water-ink painting is an independent form of art which heals the mind and the spirit at the same time. This free hand brush work integrates poetry, calligraphy, painting and seal art and influences the evolution of contemporary Chinese water-ink paintings. Furthermore, it was categorized into three sects such as, character, landscape, flower and bird series.

The exhibition was successful in reaching out to the Sri Lankan community, touching their hearts with ‘Chinese style.’ It was a great way to strengthen the bond between the two countries.
