Albany Arts Communications is delighted to announce an exhibition of work by the acclaimed Chinese contemporary artist Dachan – his first in the UK.

Other presentations on the world tour have included the National Art Museum of China, Palace Museum, Macao Science and Culture Center, and Hong Kong Cultural Centre, as well as galleries in the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, South Korean, Thailand, Russia, Italy and Germany.

The exhibition, described as ‘a global journey of spiritual culture guided by the theory of unity through art’, features a full survey of Dachan’s works, including colour paintings, lotus ink wash paintings, figure paintings, and calligraphy. Produced over a ten-year period, these works will be shown alongside a video presentation in which visitors are invited to experience the world of Buddhism through virtual reality technology. The combination of the two will immerse visitors in the world of Dachan’s creations.

Dachan – also known as Zisong Xuanzhu (Master of the Lilac Pine Pavilion) – is an autodidact and a child prodigy who fell in love with poetry, calligraphy and painting at a very early age. He achieved Zen enlightenment on the basis of a gradual understanding of aesthetic subtleties. His poetry has a primitive simplicity and naturalness, drawing upon the principles of calligraphy; and his calligraphy draws upon the principles of painting, while his painting draws upon the principles of nature; and together they all are imbued with the spirit of Zen.
