Art of perseverance

Liang Yunqing, a retired professor of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, compares himself to a snail that "always moves forward with perseverance, despite facing difficulties and challenges". In his teens, Liang drew posters for cinemas in his native Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region. He enrolled in the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1952 and was later sent to Germany, where he spent seven years studying fresco and oil painting. There he was introduced to expressionism, and he decided that mural painting would be the focus of his future career. Unique Charm, an exhibition running at the Central Academy of Fine Arts' museum through Sunday, reviews the artist's efforts to develop modern mural art and education. The collection of more than 40 paintings is largely comprised of works donated by Liang to his alma mater last year. As well as oil paintings and drafts of murals he was commissioned to create, Liang also exhibits a series of color ink paintings dating back to the 1990s that show his exploration of a more abstract style.

9:30 am-5:30 pm, Tuesday-Sunday.8 Huajiadi Nan Jie, Chaoyang district, Beijing. 010-6477-1575.
