Prints of Chinese paintings shown at ShilpakalahPrints of paintings by noted Chinese artists were displayed at a two-day exhibition at the National Art Gallery of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, which ended on Friday.
The exhibition, titled ‘Chinese Culture to South Asia: Exhibition of Fine Arts of Contemporary China,’ was jointly organised by the academy and the Bangladesh-China Peoples’ Friendship Association.
There were prints of 30 artworks by 11 artists, offering a glimpse of the rich heritage of art in China. Themes of spirituality, women’s beauty or the scenic beauty of nature have been addressed in those paintings, with splendid colour-composition and realistic portrayals of subjects such as human beings, gods and natural elements.
One of the artworks was called Colour on Nine-Valley, painted by artist Ma Jun, depicting mountains with snow-capped tops reaching high into the sky. The portrayal of the mountains would have been incomplete without the adjoining forests or the lakes with blue water that the artist depicted to complete his painting.
Artist Zhu Daopinh also portrayed the scenic beauty of China in his painting Snow in Sunshine, which depicts a landscape covered with snow, with small hills, withering trees, and a frozen river zigzagging its way through the hills.
In another painting, titled Wisdom of Vajra, a dragon was portrayed with its coiling body, scales and a set of spiraling horns on its head. The dragon was painted by Jinke Xuanlei.
The other artists featured at the exhibition were Li Ling, Heu Jhibao, Sang Rangua, Jeng Leidi, Wao Ruiguang, In Jigaofemong, Chen Youfu, Lin Youngsong, You Feng and Chui Jhing.
