In 2010, Zirou Li Gang was selected in the most famous ink and wash painter of the year. In 2012, “Tang People Playing Polo” drawn by Zirou Li Gang was listed as National treasure project’s key supporting one by China Social and Cultural Foundation of Ministry of China. In 2013, this series of paintings were exhibited around five African countries, it got the highly commend from Kaunda, the former president of Zambia, who also signed his name on a < Tang People Playing Polo > painting. In December 2014, this series of paintings were selected in France Louvre Carrousel International Art Salon and won the silver prize.
Artist divided the ink into five different shades and special-tailed xuan paper to depict the tumultuous horses, rolling ball, and flying sticks. Unrestrained painting skills produced the natural depiction of Tang People and their life styles. This is not only a free life style, but also a free time.

Here I would like to offer special thanks to great Spanish artist Picasso. His propagation for Chinese paintings inspired us to hold the exhibition. In 1956, Picasso got a copy of the paintings of Qi Baishi, which impressed Picasso with its unique style. Picasso told Zhang Daqian, a Chinese artist who went to visit him, In terms of art, Chinese art should be ranked No.1. Mr.Qi’s paintings are amazing for that in his portrait of fish, although he did not use any ink to draw water, we can still feel the fish swimming in the water. In inTang People Playing Polo, we cannot see the specific details of horses’ hooves, but we can feel the movement in an abstract way. Zirou Li Gang focus on both Chinese art as well as the study of western art, and he often combine both realistic style and abstractions to create artwork. Art is not just skills, but also philosophy, ideas, and time.
In conclude, I wish this exhibition great success.
