[Shenzhen] Mahdavi & Qi Baishi pinting shows (Feb 28/Apr 8)
Latest Updated by 2007-02-13 16:56:41

French artist Rafael Mahdavi's one-man painting exhibition will run through Feb. 28, showcasing 20 representative works by the artist from 1973 to 2005.

 

Born with Chinese blood in Mexico in 1946, Mahdavi owns French, American, Mexican and Iranian passports.

 

So far, he has held solo art exhibitions in the United States, France, Germany, Spain, Britain, and Canada. He now lives and works in France.

 

The 20 works on display, with different themes and techniques, represent the different styles of the artist during different periods and reflect multicultural influences he absorbed over the past years.

 

In another exhibition at the museum, 60 paintings of human figures by late Chinese master painter Qi Baishi are on display through April 8.

 

Qi's works reflect the outlook of a great artist from a peasant-carpenter background. His paintings do not possess the sentimentality and aloofness of the typical Chinese scholar-painters, or the obtuseness and lack of imagination marking conventional and stereotyped paintings of the literati in feudal China.

 

According to Chen Junyu, director of the research and collection department of Guan Shanyue Art Museum, most of Qi's works on display are being shown to the public for the first time. After Qi's death in 1957, those works were locked in the warehouse of the Beijing Fine Art Institute as the institute's permanent collection.
