From the 16th of October, 2014 the grand halls of the Art Academy museum will host an exhibition of works created by Chinese artists: Sui Un and Lee Chen.
Sui Un is a Chinese artist passionate about the lives of the people from his nation. The artist can be considered a painter of realism; he tends to show suffering, struggles and resistance by the Chinese people through the medium of art. On the other hand, his works display contemporary lives of Chinese people, their passions to work and life, and their active social positions.
One of the main motifs of his works are horses. The images of horses could be seen in such works as: “10 marvelous trotters under the moon”, “Under the rain”, “A hundred horses” and “Spring rain in the grassland”.
Sui Un won first prize at the National Competition of Paintings and a second prize at the 6th National Art Fair. During the last 20 years, more than 20 solo exhibitions were organized in many countries, including the United States, Malaysia, Singapore, and China. The artist’s art pieces are in public and private collections in China and abroad.
Lee Chen is most known as an illustrator, postal stamps designer and ink wash painter. In 1984 the artist graduated from the Art Academy named after Lu Sin.
The distinguishing features of his art are: frameless prints, extreme attention to contours of depicted items and a usage of elegant silver color palette. The artist often uses the pencil technique that refers rather to a realistic style of drawing than to a decorative one.
The exhibition will be open until the 26th of October, 2014
