Pagoda Arts: The First Touch of Chinese Ink Painting

27 February  –  12 March

9.30  to 16:00


viewing: 2 March 17-19:00

We touch the elegant rice paper.

We twist the tip of the woolen brushes.

We let the ink and water connect and dance over the rice paper, our body moves with the rhythm, our minds focus on the spreading water trails.

We begin with no expectations and we finish with understanding and calmness.

To understand an art style is to understand another lifestyle.

Here is the first touch of a Chinese traditional art style from Liverpool! 

Curator: Wei Gan 

Wei Gan is an artist and a teacher of traditional Chinese Ink Painting in Liverpool. 

The exhibition shows the amazing talent of my students. When looking at students’ beautiful paintings, it is difficult to imagine that they have only studied this art form as a hobby for one year. The artworks truly display the students’ strong passion and their understanding of a new and very different art genre.   

You are invited to an evening opening reception on Friday, March 2nd, 5pm-7 pm in the Pagoda Arts, c/o Pagoda Chinese Youth & Community Centre located on Henry Street, Liverpool, L1 5BU. 

The exhibition is open from 9.30 am to 4 pm, Monday-Saturday. There is no admission charge.

The Pagoda Chinese Youth & Community Centre was established in 1982 to serve the Chinese people and the local community in Liverpool. Liverpool has the oldest Chinese community in Europe and there is much pride in the history of this community.
