The opening featured live painting, which was dedicated to happiness and presented to Dubai Cares and Ministry of Happiness to foster relations between China and UAE
The event was also attended by Her Excellency Sheikha Dr. Hind Al Qassimi, a member of the royal family of Sharjah, U.A.E., and the Chairwoman of BPW Emirates Club and BPW Middle East as well as Diplomats, Art Collectors, regional Businessmen and regional media.
The artist will be showcasing his ink paintings and calligraphic pieces until the 7th October at St. Regis Hotel, Dubai.
Dachan combines ink art, traditionally from Chinese culture to express ways to co-exist with one’s surroundings in harmony. Inspired by nature and calligraphy, Shi Dachan introduces classic and timeless pieces of contemporary art that sets its own cultural and heritage trends in Asia’s art industry.
Mr. Oswald Wong, President and CEO of the China International Development and Investment Corporation Limited attended the event. He is particularly supportive of the Chinese national strategy “One Belt One Road”, which aims to link over 60 countries to enhance cross-border trade and investment with the ultimate objective of cultural exchange and economic improvement.
UAE is naturally an important market given the new visa free rule for Chinese nationals entering UAE and the exhibition is the first step towards initiating cultural exchange between the two countries.
According to Dachan, “With increased interest from Ink Calligraphy lovers, it was only time before we ventured into the Middle East region to strengthen cultural ties with art lovers from the GCC and Levant.
Vanessa de Caires, Owner of Sulty Events and Entertainment Dubai said, ” We love that Dachan is inspired by the natural world, embracing conceptual art and his Chinese influenced collection presents a modern yet culturally diverse and authentic art expression to enthrall the local audience.”
Sultan Bin Ali Al Owais Cultural Foundation invited art and calligraphy enthusiasts amongst its members as a key supporter of exhibition.
The paintings and calligraphy showcased in the UAE ranks among the finest in China and beyond, perfect as masterpieces in art galleries and private collectors residences.
