Chen Xiangbo, known for his administrative work to direct the Guan Shanyue Art Museum in Guangdong province's Shenzhen, has also built a reputation over several decades for his exploration of Chinese ink art.
The Cream of Art shows dozens of ink works by Chen at the Powerlong Art Center in Xiamen, Fujian province, until Dec 5.
The exhibition, curated by Zhu Xiaojun, showcases Chen's recent endeavors in continuing the aesthetic and philosophical spirit of classical Chinese ink paintings.
On show are the Twenty-four Solar Terms and Twelve Zodiac Animals series, in which he adopts the flower-and-bird style of classical paintings while using a rather bold palette to present a calm atmosphere.
His digital work of animated ink paintings presents his experiment in new possibilities to present traditional art forms.
