China Art Expo, October 2014, Songzhuang Art Centre
I spent a wonderful couple of hours in the Songzhuang township in Beijing for the opening of the 2014 China Art Expo. The Expo showcased artwork from 80 countries at seven museums and art centres, including one of the paintings I created in Beijing. The message from the Liu Yuzhu, assistant to the Minister of Culture was that the “Chinese art industry is growing rapidly and the market has become a significant player in the global art scene”. My painting was included in the World Art Exhibition curated by the well known Professor Peng Feng.
The theme of the expo was “Art Makes Life Better”, and this objective was clearly met by the hard work of all involved.

I had a wonderful discussion with these two Chinese artists about the painted surface with expo staff kindly acting as translators.
