On the occasion of celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, it is precisely the 10th anniversary of the founding of Foshan Art Creation Institute. The famous painter Liu Yun was invited to hold an exhibition in Foshan, which is indeed a great art event in Foshan.
Foshan Art Creation Institute was established in 2011 by integrating Foshan Art Creation Research Office, Foshan Painting Academy, Foshan Sculpture Institute, and Foshan Citizen Art Troupe. For ten years, Foshan Art Creation Institute has been adhering to the idea of strengthening foreign art exchanges and opening up the institute, and has taken the responsibility of enriching and improving Foshan’s local art ecology.
Since the 1980s, Mr. Liu Yun has been known as the Lakeside Poet for his quiet and poetic oil painting creations. To this day, his ink paintings still incorporate the traces of early oil painting exploration, running through a kind of quietness and tranquility. The harmony of the Chinese and Western atmosphere has been commented by many scholars as creating a new atmosphere of Chinese landscape painting.
The “Feng QIng Yun Ji-Liu Yun Art Exhibition, the work span of 34 years (1986-2019), a total of more than 70 works of Mr. Liu Yun are exhibited, presenting Liu Yun’s decades of artistic creation on the exploration and innovation process. It is divided into early oil paintings, recent ink paintings, sculptures, and art documents. It presents Mr. Liu Yun’s art world from different dimensions, expresses his harmonious, quiet, deep and graceful art style, as well as his artistic attitude of studying art theory and continuous innovation. It shows Mr. Liu Yun’s rich and colorful painting world and his artistic love for Foshan from different dimensions.
In 1993, Mr. Liu Yun was transferred from his hometown to Foshan Painting Academy as a full-time painter, and was transferred in 1996. Although in just three years, Mr. Liu Yun has left an unforgettable artistic footprint in Foshan; Foshan is also a place where he looks back at himself.
This exhibition will be a rare artistic feast, and I believe it will definitely provide the general public with a different artistic enjoyment.
I wish Mr. Liu Yun a complete success in the exhibition!
