Chinese artist Shen Ming Cun exhibits remarkable works at Loulé’s ArtCatto gallery

Loulé’s ArtCatto gallery is featuring an inspirational new fine art exhibition in celebration of the remarkable works of China’s Shen Ming Cun, described as “a rare talent”

His passion for ancient traditions makes him widely regarded as an internationally respected artist, as well as a Professor of European Art. Shen Ming Cun is credited with bringing to light the effects of the modern world on ancient way of life.

Shen Ming Cun’s work is focused on the tribes of Miao and Yao and the Dong minority of the remote GuangXi region, from where the young people are migrating to the big cities.

His work is a study of the traditional style of dressunique to each village – where clothes and jewellery are hand sewn and crafted by the local girls.

The colours are subtle but dazzle, the detail is intricate and elaborate, the shy smiles of the subjects enchanting.

In addition to his outstanding paintings portraying life as it was and people as they are, his work is found in important collections in Beijing, in the Chinese Masterpiece exhibition in Hong Kong, as well as numerous art museums and several major galleries in the UK.

Shen Ming has worked on many major commissions for the Chinese government, including one for the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party; the vast oil painting, Battle of XianGjiang River, measures 280x420cm and is on display at the Guangxi Museum of Fine Arts.

ArtCatto is exhibiting 11 Shen Ming Cun paintings that are new to the gallery.

ArtCatto can be found at Avenida José da Costa Mealha 43 in Loulé. For more information, contact 289 419 447 / 916 740 337.
