Mo Hai Cal­lig­ra­phy and Paint­ing Ex­hi­bi­tion

Beijing (English) - - INFO -

An ex­hi­bi­tion of the cal­lig­ra­phy and paint­ings of the Chi­nese artist Mo Hai opened on Au­gust 12, 2017 in the Chi­nese Busi­ness Con­ven­tion Cen­ter in Bei­jing, with the theme “Ex­plor­ing the Splen­dour Dif­fer­ent to the World.”

The show had dozens of Mo's cal­lig­ra­phy and paint­ings on dis­play, and the artist took an ac­tive part by cre­at­ing works on the spot and shared his ideas on cre­ativ­ity and his ex­pe­ri­ence with art en­thu­si­asts and vis­i­tors.

Also on hand for the ex­hi­bi­tion, in an­other area, were some travel ex­perts who came to share tourism and travel ideas and ex­pe­ri­ences as a way of per­fectly blend­ing the artist's land­scapes with tourist cul­ture and re­sources.

Mo uses an ob­jec­tive treat­ment of changes and ex­ag­ger­a­tion in artis­tic ex­pres­sion, in­stead of a di­rect copy­ing of real scenery, moun­tains and wa­ter. His works have an ef­fect of mak­ing the land­scape in­ter­de­pen­dent with a void and so­lid­ity, through “bony brush-works” and “rhyth­mic vi­tal­ity.” Mo's tech­niques are meant to be re­lent­lessly true to life, while de­scrib­ing na­ture that suits pub­lic taste.

Mo has trav­eled to China's moun­tains and rivers in re­cent years to pro­duce nearly 100 land­scape paint­ings and to use ink to paint, for ex­am­ple, a blade of grass, a pine tree, a moun­tain peak and a cloud. He de­vel­oped his own style with an ink and wash tech­nique. He has worked cease­lessly to re­fine Chi­nese cal­lig­ra­phy and paint­ing, with har­mo­nious colours and vigour. At the same time, his works ex­press the care­free and nat­u­ral, and paint­ing that is full of fun.

One of Mo's more out­stand­ing works—“The Panoramic View of Mount Huang­shan”—is a 100-me­tre-long scroll based on sev­eral dozen vis­its to Mount Huang­shan in An­hui Province over the past five years.

In re­lated news, the Liaon­ing Nor­mal Univer­sity Press pub­lished the Mo Hai shuhua ji (“col­lec­tion of the cal­lig­ra­phy and paint­ings of Mo Hai”) in 2011, and he has ex­hib­ited his cal­lig­ra­phy and paint­ings for the 90th an­niver­sary of the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist Party and the 100-year an­niver­sary of the 1911 Rev­o­lu­tion.
