The scholar’s studio is a refined place of creation and presentation. Art+ Shanghai Gallery celebrates links to tradition to inspire creativity and contemplation. The current renaissance in Chinese ink painting is represented by internationally acclaimed artists, Yu Peng and Huang Zhiyang in addition to the young painter, Xiang Guohua whose works that resonate with the literati spirit.
Art+ Shanghai Gallery and Chai Living Gallery share a passion for the arts of the Chinese literati aesthetic past and present, but each with a distinct expertise. In Scholar’s Studio the two venues come together through objects collected and created. Contemporary visions in ink and oil combine with traditional and contemporary designs in wood, bronze, and ceramics to capture the artistic essence of the literati tradition and sensibility.
The exhibition will be open to the public on September 7th. In a special performance Xiang Guohua will set up his studio inside the gallery for the second and the final week of the exhibition.
