Academy Grad’s Inks Featured in the Exhibit "Beyond Tradition"
Christie’s gallery is presenting its first Chinese contemporary ink exhibition titled “Beyond Tradition” from November 22 to 27, 2012 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The exhibition features 18 works by leading artists in the field, including Academy of Art University MFA School of Fine Art alumni Li Huayi. The Academy alumni took a deep interest in Buddhism, which is intricately related to the development of classical Chinese art. His subject matter is primarily landscape, with a style reminiscent of classical masterpieces from the Northern Song period. These artists examine the traditional medium of ink painting through a modern lens and present works that reinterpret this tradition and innovate in terms of technique, presentation and subject matter. This exhibition in Hong Kong will be followed by a series of Chinese contemporary ink private-sale exhibitions in 2013, starting with New York in March and Hong Kong in May.
