All are welcome to visit. In order to allow the audience to experience the deep connection between music and poetry in He Duoling's creations, the Macao Orchestra will perform at the opening ceremony.

He Duoling is one of the leading figures in contemporary Chinese painting who graduated from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and became famous in the 1980s. After causing a sensation in the painting world with the paintings Spring Winds have Awoken, Youth, and The Crow is Beautiful, he won a number of major domestic and international awards and his works are collected by important art institutions and collectors. His painting techniques are refined, poetic, and imbued with a mysterious artistic language.

This exhibition will present a series of works such as The House with the Mezzanine; Zhai Yongming; Labyrinth Tower; Rabbit; Russian Forest; House with No Roof; Wild Garden, Woman and Wall, among others. In over 40 years of artistic creation, regardless of whether it is through his precise and realistic style prevalent in the early years, or the freehand brushwork of “between likeness and unlikeness” seen in recent years, He Duoling has always used poetic and lyrical artistic language to express beauty. Even until now, He continues his outpouring of vitality as he moves towards the realm of unfathomable beauty through endless exploration and change. The audience can glimpse of He’s artistic development through the exhibition and feel the vigorous and endless creativity.
