By B.Tungalag

On July 23, artists from the Shanxi Province of the People’s Republic of China opened an exhibition including calligraphy and paintings, at the Chinese Cultural Center in Ulaanbaatar. The paintings mostly depict the life of locals and the natural beauty of Shanxi Province. Palm trees and mud houses on a mountain top show the differences between Shanxi and Mongolia.

Around 60 artworks from five artists, including Wan Shu Hui, Han Shaohui, Libin, show the beauty of Shanxi Province’s landscapes. Libin said, “I usually create my artworks with watercolor and oil color. I am taking part in the exhibition with 12 of my artworks in total. I depict life in the province and locals in my works of art”. After the opening reception, Chinese painters and calligraphers met Mongolian artists and exchanged their experiences.

Shanxi is a province of the People’s Republic of China, located in the China’s northern region. Its area is 156,800 square kilometers, and the population is 35 million. Shanxi province has an ancient history of calligraphy.
