As a carrier of traditional Chinese culture, calligraphy has witnessed a long history and becomes a symbol of China's profound culture; while as a common language of all humanity, paintings play an important role in merging different cultures during their creation. Thus, these calligraphy works and paintings will function as a new channel that will be open to the public, connect China and other countries, and show the real China to the rest of the world.
