|711.||Venice Bridge, original oil painting on
canvas by Meng Liu
It's always nice to find Chinese artists who have broadened their life experience by traveling outside of China. Meng Liu has traveled in Europe, and, like a true artist, he has recorded some of his memories in paintings. This is one of several that he painted in Venice. It is even more interesting because China is also famous for its water villages, and Chinese painters have done many paintings of them. For example, here, in Guangzhou, we have a water village at the southern boundary of the city, called Xiaozhou, which has attracted many of the local artists to paint its canals and bridges, and we even have a number of those paintings in our gallery.
Meng Liu is a fine artist from the old northern Chinese capital of Shenyang. He did many paintings in impressionistic styles in the late 1990's to early 2000's, and we are very impressed by his style, in those, with this one as a good example.

Gulangyu Beach: original oil painting on canvas by Xue Sheng Tan (Tan Xue Sheng),
This is painting of an area near Xiamen, China, which is on the mainland side of the Taiwan Strait, in fact, we also have a photograph on the hyperlink page, which gives almost the same view. On the large rock formation on the right is a 138 foot high, 500 ton statue of Cheng Gong Zheng, a 17th century hero, originally from Japan but named the Duke of Loyalty and Filial Piety by Emperor Longwu: his more common Chinese name is Guoxingye. He is famous for leading a force from Xiamen to reclaim Taiwan from the Dutch colonizers.

|804.||Smiling, original oil painting by Tang
Hai Guo (2012)
Scavengers, in the streets, men in their 50's sifting through trash cans to find the good stuff. Their skin is yellow-brown from spending all of their time outdoors, roaming the streets with their bags full of clanking cans. Indeed, we have such a collector, next door to the gallery.
His smile, too, is as bright as the sun, showing his innocence and expressing the hopefulness and contentment that he feels in his simple life, and he does not lose face for the job that he pursues.

The Stand: original oil painting on canvas by Da Zhong Zhang
We like the composition of this portrait. At first, it appears that there are three girls; look more closely: there are four.
