Philosophical art

Xiong Liang, one of China's best picture book illustrators, became the first Chinese artist shortlisted for the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2018. Xiong, also an author, a painter and poet, has been nurtured by the cultural traditions of the East and the West from a young age, including classic Chinese ink painting and Western philosophies. His works brim with imagination, emotion, poetry and an inner strength, allowing his output to create a resonance among audiences around the world. From Beginning to Boundlessness, an exhibition now on at One Atelier space in Beijing, offers people the full spectrum and depth of Xiong's work in painting, illustration, writing and design. The exhibition, jointly curated by Jiang Yuan, He Juju and Xiao Huaide, is divided into two sections showing the evolution of his cross-disciplinary approach to creation and takes on art and life. The current chapter, running through July 31, displays paintings themed on flowers and human faces that let viewers glimpse into Xiong's mind, covering traditional and contemporary art, and reflecting on the meaning of existence. In his art world, things emerge and are gone soon: the flowers indicate the passing of time, and the faces in the paintings make viewers feel a state of peace and meditation. The second leg of the exhibition will start from Aug 7 and last through Sept 3.

12 am-6 pm, Tuesday to Friday. Huigugenyuan compound, 2 Guangze Road, Chaoyang district, Beijing.186-1241-1326.
