Painting Borders: the Art of Zhao Wuji
Time & Location
About the Event
In this webinar, we will focus on Zhao Wuji (Zao Wou-ki), a Sino-French painter of the second half of the 20th century. His paintings are the result of the hybridization of two pictorial languages, water-ink painting and oil painting. We will briefly look at his journey, guided by his biography and the contributions he made to both worlds, the Chinese and the European.
