A SOLO EXHIBITION BY ZHANG CHUNLEI
2020 UOB PAINTING OF THE YEAR AWARD WINNER
The rich heritage of Chinese culture serves as a foundation, deepening our understanding of the nation’s history and values. As an artist, I reinterpreted traditional calligraphy to align with contemporary sensibilities. Chinese art’s beauty emanates from calligraphy and painting’s shared origins, representing the essence of Chinese culture, values, and philosophy. However, we must avoid blind imitation and trend-chasing in cultural preservation, as it lacks emotional depth. I endeavour to innovate by incorporating various materials while preserving tradition, driving the creation of this series. In conclusion, the enduring cultural legacy illuminates our path forward, preparing us for unknown challenges.
