On the afternoon of July
28, Sun Endao's ink painting exhibition opened at the Bund
1861 FAME Art Gallery on Hualou Street, Hankou. Forty ink paintings are being exhibited, reproducing the leisurely lifestyle of Chinese scholars in ancient times.
Sun has served as the president of the Hubei Fine Arts Publishing House and is a member of the China Artists Association's comic strip art committee. He has published art works on poems from the Tang, Song and Yuan dynasties, and has a thorough understanding of ancient Chinese literature.
Sun's works on display in this exhibition mainly depict the leisure activities of ancient Chinese, including winetasting, poetry, horse-riding, fishing, lute-playing, chess, calligraphy, and painting. One example is the piece titled "Fenggu (Strength of Character) in the Wei and Jin dynasty" which describes the story of the seven sages of the bamboo grove. Combined with poems, Sun's ink paintings are full of classical style.
This free exhibition is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. until August 28.
