Without traveling all the way to the Netherlands, but right here at your doorstep in Guangzhou, you can now enjoy fascinating works by Armando, one of the greatest Dutch artists.

Further reading: Armando and China

In 1986, Armando joined a group tour to China and visited Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. When he was back in the Netherlands, he wrote two articles (“De Groep” and “Peking Onder de Grond”) about it for the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad.

In January 1988, China’s Lijiang Publishing Ltd. edited and published Modern Dutch Poetry, which includes six poems written by Armando. In August 2005, Guangxi Normal University Press published a second edition and it won the Best Jacket/Cover Design in the first Chinese Government Award for Publishing in November 2007.

Armando’s artworks exhibited in China

From November 2014 to July 2015, the touring exhibition “Art Space Germany: Kunstraum Deutschland” was shown in Beijing, Nanjing and Wuhan, showcasing the works of thirteen migrant artists who live in Germany and their influence on German art society, including five Armando’s paintings in three sets.

From October 2016 to January 2017, the exhibition “Same? Not the Same” in Wuhan featured 23 pieces of art works created by twelve artists from six different countries, two of which were Armando’s paintings.

From September 2017 to March 2018, the exhibition “Made in China – Armando & Masterworks from the Qing Dynasty” in Guangzhou compared Armando’s works with Chinese 18th century landscape paintings. After seeing the exhibition in person, Armando was indeed surprised by the similarities between his works and those of Li Jian, a native of Guangdong and a famous painter in the Qing Dynasty.
