Mr WANG Jianquan is an artist and an art teacher based at Beijing, China. In 2014, he organized a Solo Exhibition in Sydney and after that he toured various places including the Great Ocean Road and Uluru. He was greatly impressed by the red soil, blue waters and the friendly attitude of the local people. He made a lot of sketches and drew on large rice paper after he returned to Beijing. His style is a good combination of western painting and traditional Chinese painting. Mr Wang would be present at the venue from Wednesday to Saturday and would like to meet with fellow artists.

北京畫家王建權 :《澳洲印象》畫展在卓士活 Chatswood 中華文化中心舉行。現已開始,展至12月19日 (星期一)。王建權在2014年來雪梨舉辦個人展覽,大獲好評。展覽後他到澳洲各地如大洋路, 烏魯魯等旅遊及寫生。他深深地被澳洲的紅土地,蔚藍色的海洋及純樸的風土人情所感動。回北京後他努力將澳洲的美景寫在宣紙上。今次展覽有大畫數張, 最觸目的是巨畫《欲窮千里目- 藍山景觀 》(220 x 362 cm), 這張畫融合西畫透視和色彩及國畫的皴法和神韻。此外還有數十張寫澳洲風景的設色水墨和水彩小幅, 十分精彩。
