Central Academy of Fine Arts;

Wu Manyi, Professor

Danish Embassy

A talk by Professor Ye Yuzhong, Vice-President of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, will be given in the context of an exhibition of his works and those of his wife Wu Manyi, who also teaches at the academy. Professor Ye's talk will cover the use of the traditional tools and materials of the Chinese painter: silk fabric, Xuan paper, brushes, colors and inks. Different types of brushwork, subject matter, inspiration and emotional input will also be discussed. Both painters spent many years in Xinjiang: we will hear about the deep influence the area has had upon their work. Professor Ye will also talk about the inspiration he has derived from Tang Poetry.
