A solo exhibition of oil painting works by Li Zhongmao, Memory of My Encounter with Balthus, is held at Daguan Art Gallery of New Century Global Center in southern Chengdu.

A solo exhibition of oil painting works by Li Zhongmao, Memory of My Encounter with Balthus, is held at Daguan Art Gallery of New Century Global Center in southern Chengdu. More than 80 works by the artist of recent three years are on display.

As a journalist and writer for a local media, Mr. Li began learning the art of painting in 2007, first by copying the works by Balthus, a Polish-French modern artist with his original name as Balthasar Klossowski de Rola. With the development of his skills, Li has become an amateur artist and spends much of his spare time in painting. The objects in his painting mainly are cats and women, most of which are his wife and friends.
Recent years have seen more exhibitions of amateur artists in the city of Chengdu, including writers, poets, professors, journalists and TV anchors. With no professional training in art, they have found a new world for their latent talent in art creation and made a new phenomenon in local intellectual circles of Chengdu, a city noted for its long cultural tradition and leisurely life, which provides an ideal environment for artists.
