Lac­quer art­work on show

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Chi­nese lac­quer painter Su Xing is bring­ing a se­lec­tion of his art­work for an ex­hi­bi­tion this month at the Whi­tireia Porirua cam­pus.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is com­ing to New Zealand with the back­ing of the Chi­nese Gov­ern­ment.

It is an op­por­tu­nity to showcase a unique art form in this coun­try as part of a cul­tural ex­change pro­gramme.

Su has had his works ex­hib­ited in many coun­tries and is widely known in China as a top lac­quer painter.

He grad­u­ated from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 1985 with a ma­jor in lac­quer paint­ing.

He has won sev­eral art lit­er­ary prizes in China.

Kaye Ju­jnovich, the arts fac­ulty dean at Whi­tireia, said that the ex­hi­bi­tion was made pos­si­ble be­cause of strong links Whi­tireia had with arts univer­si­ties in Guang­dong prov­ince, China.

Su works closely with sev­eral of those univer­si­ties in his role as deputy chair­man of the Guangzhou Artists As­soci- ation and as a vis­it­ing pro­fes­sor at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts.
