Speech made by Mr. Xu Qinsong, the vice chairman of Chinese Artists Association, the chairman of Guangdong Province Literary Federation and the president of Guangdong Fine Arts Academy


Xu Qingsong first addressed the opening ceremony of the exhibition. On behalf of Chinese Artists Association, he expressed his heartfelt congratulations on the opening of the exhibition. He pointed out that the Chinese mural has a long history and has reached the peak of world culture. In the late 1970s, the innovative spirit of the Chinese Mural Renaissance Movement had its great influence on the whole Chinese painting circle. As a public art, murals are different from the paintings on the shelves, and murals need to seek symbiosis between architecture and painting, while the special research of mural materials and craftsmanship is none other than an effective bridge of connection. The application of mosaic techniques in murals has its excellent material performance and artistic expression force.

The artists invited for this exhibition cover the old, the middle-aged and the young generations. In addition, we also invited the outstanding representatives of other painting categories. The works submitted by the artists have been transformed with mosaic materials to create a batch of high-quality mosaic art works. In the afternoon of the same day, a seminar taking the theme of “Reconstruction of the Artistic Structure of Mosaic” will be held, which will further explore the possibilities and future trend of mosaic craftsmanship in art creation, architectural and environmental design, craft derivatives and other fields.

Xu Qinsong then mentioned that Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts is located in the southern gate of China, and is one of the most important fine arts institutions in China. Its decorative arts disciplines have a long history and profound background. Its specialty of industrial arts was awarded as the “Key Development Discipline” in Guangdong Province last year. The time, it actively undertakes the “Mosaic China – Mosaic Art Invitational Exhibition”, and the teachers and students of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts actively participated in the planning and various work of this exhibition, which will surely further promote their research, creation and teaching work in the fields of decorative arts and industrial arts, binging about the new highlights for the discipline construction in Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts.

▲Speech made by Mr. Tang Xiaohe, the director of the Mural Art Committee of Chinese Artists Association



ressed his warm congratulations on the opening of the exhibition on behalf of the Mural Art Committee of Chinese Artists Association. He mentioned that the mosaic is an ancient form of art, and in the history of both East and West, wonderful mosaic works of art have been created. In the modern times, the large-scale mosaic murals and architectural decoration created in European and American countries have achieved extensive social recognition. The mosaic art used in architectural decoration and mural creation started late in China. Since 1960s, it began to be applied to the mural creation, and in the 1980s, there appeared a number of mosaic murals with considerable artistic quality. The mosaic art exhibition for this time is the first one in China, which is aimed at showing various possibilities of the application of mosaic craftsmanship in artistic creation. He believed that these mosaic works have made the mosaic art in China reach an unprecedented height.

He finally introduced the partner, Guangdong Victory Glass Building Materials Co., Ltd. (JNJ Mosaic Brand), praised its achievements of producing the mosaic murals for Beijing Metro, Nanjing Grand Theater, Yan’an Grand Theater and many other important public buildings, and accounted for the details of the organization and preparation process of this mosaic art invitational exhibition.

Speech made by Mr. Li Jinkun, the president of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and the chairman of Guangdong Province Artists Association


Mr. Li Jinkun delivered a speech at the opening ceremony. He stressed that this was a highly academic exhibition, and currently, it was particularly valuable to spend two and a half years preparing such a thematic exhibition. He said that the exhibition gave us two topics for thinking. First of all, this exhibition presented the respect for academic and research subjects in the whole process from planning to implementation, which gave us a good inspiration for the academic research. In addition, in today’s environment, with growth of the modern Western design specialty, the original crafts disciplines in China have been oppressed constantly. Consequently, the industrial art deposited over thousands of years has been shrinking, which is worth our thinking – under the background of the continued high-speed development in the whole country, only by preserving the most fundamental process design concept belonging to the Orient can the oriental craftsmanship spread all over the world. Industrial art, as a major with a long history in Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, should be taken into consideration how to further develop it into an influential major in China and how to perform the current teaching and research.

Mr. Li Jinkun also spoke highly of the craftsmanship presented in this exhibition, and said that how to treat academic study with the spirit and the concept of craftsmanship was also the enlightenment brought about by this exhibition.

He mentioned that the works of many outstanding artists had been presented through the mosaic crafts, showing us the possibility of mosaic in the artistic creation. The exhibition brought us the fine works for our appreciation, and at the same time put forward many subjects for the further research in the teaching, especially the industrial art teaching of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, which made this exhibition have a demonstrative role.
