In 2007 the 'First Guanlan International Print Exhibition' took place in Shenzen, China as a biennial event. The 2009 Guanlan International Print Exhibition will open on May 14th. This article gives you some preview information on this important event - and last but not least we list the artists represented also by artelino who were selected for this prestigious art show.
The exhibition opens on May 14th. 1604 artists from 70 different countries submitted 2804 artworks to this juried art print show. Out of these 246 art prints from China and 341 prints from other countries were selected.
Of the Chinese printmakers that we have offered since 2003 we currently have news of the following artists having been accepted:
Fortunately we still have several prints by the selected artists on consignment, mainly from the collection of the late H.T. - including the art print Bridge by Shi Yanqing. For this special occasion we are running an auction of Chinese art prints exclusively devoted to the participating artists from May 10 until May 17.
Here is one print art work by each of "our" artists represented in the Guanlan Print Exhibition.
Wen Mujiang was discovered by our art agent in China when he was still making his large woodblock prints on the balcony of a small apartment. Since then he has won major prizes. His art prints are still affordable - in spite of small editions.
Li Yanpeng's landscape prints in reduction woodblock technique are unique. Prices have gone up considerably over the last years. If you are among the lucky ones who purchased one of the circa 100 prints that we sold by Li Yanpeng, keep them by all means. We expect higher prizes for Li Yanpeng in the future.
Shi Yanqing is still affordable with prices below $ 1,000 for an art print in small edition.
A hot tip for collectors. Normally hard to get. Thanks to our long and personal connections with many artists, we can currently offer an excellent collection of the best designs by Chen Guangyong for a very reasonable price that is distinctively below the prices in China.
Earlier prints by Hu Xinqiao are today hard to get and expensive.
Zhang Guiling is usually sold out. I do not expect that we will be able to offer you any more art prints by this master who has specialized in silkscreen prints. Well, you cannot always get what you want. Sometimes it is better to take what you can currently get well and for reasonable prices.
Ji Shicheng has developed a style of his own - quite modern, but still figurative. His art prints are today "classics" of modern Chinese printmaking and are in important museums like the British Museum, the Chinese National Art Gallery. the Shanghai Art Gallery, the Yan Huang Museum, the Shenzhen Art Gallery, and the Guiyang Art Museum in China.
artelino will publish an exhibition report as soon as we will have news from the opening and will have the catalog in our hands (this may take).
