Traditional culture is taking center stage at the China International Import Expo (CIIE). A super-sized painting based off of a poem from the Song Dynasty by Wang Anshi is going viral on the internet. “The Spring Breezes Have Greened the South Yangtze River” is turning lots of heads.
It comes in at 13 meters by 8 meters, making it the largest traditional painting ever created by Shanghai artists, but it is not just its size that people are paying attention to. The beautiful use of color and evocative imagery are also drawing praise. The CIIE never ceases to amaze!
