500 pieces of pottery works are now on exhibition in Shanghai's Yi Art Museum. More than one hundred artists reveal their latest works and art installations that are packed with pure creativity and excellent technique.
The main aim of the exhibition is to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party of China and to inform local people and visitors of the country's rich ceramics heritage.
This exhibition focuses on contemporary potters and pottery that produced a great diversity of works, ranging from terracotta vessels to delicate porcelain.
One popular item on exhibit is the remake of Van Gogh's all time classic, "Starry Night". The author used hundreds of pieces of ceramic tile to form the larger version, which surprised many enthusiasts of Occidental art history. Other notable pieces include an image of the Yellow River that uses the traditional tri-color techniques of the Tang Dynasty.
As the organizer explains, some of the items on exhibition are international art award winners, while others have been permanently collected by Shanghai World Expo Museum. Also, about twenty pieces will be put up for a charity auction sale.
