Katara Inaugurates Renowned Chinese Artist s Exhibition.



Katara turned the spotlight on an exhibition that offers a unique interpretation of spirituality through the medium of paint. The display titled 'Spiritual & Holy Territory', by the renowned Chinese artist YU Hanyu, was inaugurated at Katara's premises on Wednesday.

On display are 33 paintings, created using traditional Chinese ink. The exhibit also presents four Chinese calligraphy posters depicting classic poetry. The art pieces focus on the landscape of Tibet, portraying snow mountains and glaciers in the region.

The artist uses a technique that departs from the more traditional styles used by his predecessors and contemporaries. The ink paintings use layers of gold powder and myriad shades of green to do justice to the stunning sunrises and sunsets the mountainous region of Tibet is renowned for. The use of intricate and light ink strokes add depth to the outlines of snow mountains and glaciers, bringing to life the mysticism and spiritual realms of Chinese culture, attributes which generally defy visual representation or imitation through any kind of medium.

The Chinese artist expressed his sincere gratitude and appreciation to the Cultural Village Foundation-Katara for its continuous support and efforts to host international artists in contemporary art.

YU Hanyu graduated from the Chinese Painting Department of Hubei Academy of Fine Arts, and worked as Dean of Original Painting and Calligraphy in China Federation of Literary and Art circles.

In addition, the artist is the recipient of numerous gold and silver awards for his exceptional traditional Chinese ink paintings. (
