An­ces­tral Peru­vian Ex­hi­bi­tion Held in Bei­jing

Beijing (English) - - INFO -

From Septem­ber 24 to Oc­to­ber 15, Peru­vian painter En­rique Gal­dos Ri­vas at­tended the 7th Bei­jing In­ter­na­tional Art Bi­en­nale at the Na­tional Art Mu­seum of China. The Em­bassy of Peru held an ex­hi­bi­tion of the painter at Bei­jing Jin­tai Art Mu­seum from Septem­ber 27 to Oc­to­ber 3. This is the sec­ond time Ri­vas took part in the Bei­jing ex­hi­bi­tion after his first trip to the 2010 Bei­jing In­ter­na­tional Art Bi­en­nale.

As a Latin Amer­i­can painter, Ri­vas rein­ter­prets an­cient Peru­vian paint­ings in a mod­ern way through artis­tic cre­ation, pay­ing trib­ute to Peru­vian an­ces­tors with colour. In­spired by the Inca road sys­tem of an­cient In­can cul­ture, the theme of his ex­hi­bi­tion was the Trib­ute of the An­dean Road. The an­cient Inca road sys­tem runs through the An­dean re­gion, con­nect­ing Peru, Ecuador, Colom­bia, Chile and Ar­gentina. It now serves as a chan­nel for trade and cul­tural ex­change.

The solo ex­hi­bi­tion held at Jin­tai Art Mu­seum dis­played 12 mid­sized works about an­ces­tral Peru­vian pat­terns. Th­ese works have sim­i­lar­i­ties to Chi­nese ones, such as fe­line el­e­ments and masks.
