Alisan Fine Arts is currently hosting its first exhibition at its new space in Central. The show, Yang Jiechang: This is Still Bird and Flower Painting by Yang Jiechang, features 30 works.
The exhibition includes colour paintings, oil paintings, drawings and porcelain flowers by the artist who was born in Foshan, Guangdong.
“In the beginning, when I began to study painting, I had to copy works by Huang Quan of the Five Dynasties and by Zhao Ji of the Song Dynasty for a long time,” said Jiechang.
“Now at the age of 60 I am accustomed to cultures of the East and the West. For this exhibition I still paint bird and flower paintings. Our times resemble so much the times of Song Emperor Huizong. Art is some kind of medicine, revitalising and clearing the mind.”
To celebrate, Alisan Fine Arts held an opening reception where Jiechang discussed his craft to those in attendance.
The exhibition runs until 29 April at 21/F Lyndhurst Tower, 1 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central.
