CHI MING SELECTED FOR SOLO EXHIBITION AT THE MINSHENG BANK MUSEUM, SHANGHAI

Peking Art Associates congratulates Chi Ming on the occasion of his 2014 solo exhibition at the Minsheng Bank Museum in Shanghai. This follows the solo exhibition of Chi Ming’s former professor, acclaimed figurative painter Liu Xiaodong, at the Minsheng Museum in the summer of 2014.

As publicised by The Minsheng Bank Museum:-

“Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum will hold the second phase of Young-Artist Project “Circumstance and Attitude”: YOUTH NOTES. 26 painting works done between 2013 and 2014 by the artist Chi Ming will be exhibited from 28th September to 28th October in the museum.

As the old saying goes “a son inherits his father”, art… is of… exception. As a child brought up by two consecutive generations who embarked on art as a career, it is by no means a surprise for Chi Ming to step into art with such a resourceful cultivation. Compared to his grandparents and parents, Chi is the very fortunate one who can dive into and enjoy the freedom of art. All those uninhibited natures of him is thus being released yet facilitated fully through his highly expressive oil paintings.

Across one hundred and forty-three square meters and hung over seven storeys, it combines Li Yongfei’s fine ‘gong bi’ hairline brush work of this “Survey of the Mountains and the Oceans” and the ‘shui mo’ ink wash of his recent abstract works.

We encourage you to visit this remarkable installation to view it in its entirety and close-up and from each of the second to sixth floors of the Podiumto fully appreciate this installation in all its splendour.

Peking Art Associates’ Emily de Wolfe Pettit was proud to arrange the introduction of President Michael D.

Director Wu Weishan presented the President with one of his own bronze sculptures of an important series of his works that depict Laozi, the ancient Chinese philosopher and the ‘father’ of Taoism.

When asked by the President, Wu Weishan explained that the negative space of the sculpture, under Lao-ze’s cloak which is inscribed with Taoist annals, was intended to represent the humility of the great philosopher which he said was “as large as a valley”.
