ArtChina aims to introduce established and emerging Chinese artists to a UK audience. We have developed extensive links with Chinese artists and art institutes within China itself as well as globally. We work to continually expand our network to uncover new talents, with a focus on contemporary Chinese art, and to grow these relationships. This allows us to access the best paintings, sculptures, installations, and prints from China to introduce an ever-expanding Western audience to the wonders of Chinese art.

After many years, Wanfu Chen’s gaze still fixes on the setting sun over the golden pond in late autumn. The spirit and appearance of his beloved remaining lotus are expressed through the implication of Tang and Song poems and his unique brushwork. The remaining lotus signifies not the end of destiny, but rather the cycle of flowers and the closest starting point to bloom.
Another character in the golden pond is the crakes, who dance with the remaining lotus. They walk happily among the remaining lotus with their thin figures and deft dancing steps. Their tweets serve as the song to the approaching sunset. Passersby disturb them, causing them to flap their wings. Their flight cannot last long because they are as obsessed with this golden pond as we are.
