Ukrainian capital hosts exhibition of modern Chinese art — media
An exhibition of modern Chinese art named "Masterpieces made by prominent Chinese artists" has recently kicked off in Kyiv to boost Chinese-Ukrainian cultural ties, according to Xinhua news agency.
The exhibition features 35 pieces of art made by two well-known artists from China's eastern Jiangsu Province – You Yaoming, curator of the Wuxi Greenwave Art Gallery, and Yin Xianming, a member of the Chinese Artists' Association, Xinhua reported.
Both artists have worked for decades to popularize Chinese art abroad. For their outstanding contribution to the development of cultural relations between China and Ukraine, in 2016, You and Yin became foreign members of Ukraine's National Academy of Arts – the title that has been awarded to only 22 foreigners so far.
