An art exhibition featuring works by top Chinese artists Qi Gong and Wang Xuetao kicked off at Jining Museum in Jining, East China's Shandong province, offering local residents opportunities to appreciate artistic masterpieces, as well as promoting Chinese culture.
The exhibition, which will last until June 12, has nearly 100 works by the two artists on display. The exhibits include their paintings, calligraphy works, and original poems.
Qi Gong's depictions of bamboo are different from those in textbooks, said Wang Shengkai, a calligraphy major from Shandong Polytechnic College. He has been currently learning how to draw bamboo and is greatly inspired by Qi's works.
Wang Xuetao had an important influence on traditional Chinese bird-and-flower paintings and subsequent artists, said Li Xinyan, vice president of the Jining Artists Association. He added that the exhibition provides local artists with a great opportunity to learn and exchange their views.
Rongbaozhai Cultural Development (Jining) Co, which is one of the organizers of the event, is one of the key projects that Jining has attracted. The company started its business in December 2018 and has been making efforts to bolster the city's development in cultural sectors.
