iPRECIATION is delighted to debut a solo exhibition by Chinese artist Chen Xinmao (b. 1954, China), entitled Peony Pavilion in Singapore. Over the last 38 years, Chen has exhibited in numerous countries, including China, Austria, Italy, Germany, France, U.K., U.S., Russia, Poland, Hungary, Japan, Ireland and Indonesia.

This exhibition showcases Chen’s recent body of works entitled "Peony Pavilion" inspired by China’s famous kunqu opera of the same name. Chen sought to create artworks based on the story to capture the essence of the "Chinese aesthetic," which he believes is best represented by landscape painting, with the people in his depicted gardens symbolising humankind.

Chen Xinmao was born in Shanghai, China. Chen studied at the Art Department of Shanghai Theatre Academy for his bachelor’s degree and graduated in 1982. He later obtained his master’s degree from Nanjing University of the Arts in 1987. On top of practising his artistic career, Chen is presently a Professor at East China Normal University, College of the Arts.
