An exhibition of ink paintings and Arabic calligraphy by leading oriental artist Shi Dachan has opened in Dubai. The expo was inaugurated by Sheikh Nahyan Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE’s Minister of Culture, and will run from 5-7 October at The St. Regis Hotel, Dubai. Shi Dachan combines ink art, traditionally from Chinese culture, to express ways to coexist with one’s surroundings in harmony. Inspired by nature and calligraphy, Shi Dachan introduces classic and timeless pieces of contemporary art that set their own cultural and heritage trends in Asia’s art industry, a statement said.
