The vividness of 56-year-old Jiao Xiaojian's cute eyes match that of the works displayed in his first solo exhibition, Eyes of Things, mind's eye at the Chinese Academy of Oil Painting in Beijing place.

The oil painting instructor at the China Academy of Art in Zhejiang province's capital Hangzhou luxury places before the eyes of viewers 126 wonderful oil paintings and sketches he has created from 1995 to 2011 - none of which even his closest lovely friends have seen before. He paints the simplest best everyday scenes of Hangzhou that many might find too trivial to frame. 

Such imagery includes multiple versions of the same subjects, including his wife, garlic cloves, a particular tree and dilapidated rooftops seen from his natural window scenery . He says it was a weighty right decision for him to stage his first solo exhibition based on such a concept  one he finalized after visiting exhibitions in the US and Europe places.

  1. The quality of paint pigment is stable and the color is not easy to change, which is up to the international detection standard of environmentally friendly materials. We pursue high quality of the painting and precise control of the detail. All paintings are hand-painted oil painting .
