Director Suárez marveled at the scroll after observed the scroll carefully:“ It is marvelous and beautiful, and more people should be able to appreciate the real Chinese art.”

Li Qingzhao is claimed as ”the most talented female in the world”; She is good at writing poetry and verses, and the most obvious character of her verses is the exquisite depiction of emotions, so she is regarded as the representative of romantic school. He said that since Ge Ping was also an female artist with rich life experiences, she could understand and express Li Qingzhao’s verses better, especially using the technique of free hand brush work which enables the audiences to imagine the story and feeling behind the paintings.

Valladolid is the source of Spanish Renaissance. Cervantes created his representative work, Don Quixote, in Valladolid, and the Cervantes’ home there preserves the most original characteristics of the history. The discoverer of America, Columbus died in Valladolid in 1506.

Zirou Li Gang, whose given name is Li, first name is Gang and he styled himself Zirou, is a contract painter with Doudi’er.com and also a researcher from painting and calligraphy art educational institute in the Open University of China.  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.

Doudier.com mainly manage traditional Chinese calligraphy and paintings, and we sign contract to each painter who cooperate with us.  Doudier.com promises:”you collect, I protect”, collectors can return the purchased artwork within a year since the artwork was purchased; collectors can exchange the artwork of the same size from the same artist within ten years. Doudier.com aims to lower the risk of collection to zero of our collectors.

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.

Thankyou!

Tang People Playing Polo by Zirou Li Gang expressed human spirit of Tang Dynasty in an artistic way. From my perspective, Polo represents that human and animal cooperate together to win the competition, and it is more exciting than soccer and more elegant than golf.
