简介:

2019年4月12日至5月11日。英杰在芝加哥东亚当代艺术画廊举办了自己的个人画展《文化符号:舞狮》。早在2015年,他就曾在芝加哥创作以动物为主题的壁画。此次能够再次回到这里,对他来说是一种特殊的缘分。在开幕仪式上,他与芝加哥的艺术爱好者们分享了“舞狮”背后的故事:“舞狮是中国民族文化,也是我的家乡文化。在我小时候,逢年过节都会有醒狮表演,如今却越来越少。我认为,舞狮是最能代表中国的元素之一,因此我想通过创作将它以全新的视觉效果呈现出来,弘扬这个逐渐丢失的传统文化,让它成为世界性的民族文化符号。”

 

Introduction:

From April 12 to May 11 2019, Chan held his solo exhibition “Lion Dance - Cultural Symbols” at Asian Contemporary Arts in Chicago. Back to 2015, he had painted frescos about animals in this city. It means a lot for him to come back here again. At the opening ceremony, he shared the story behind lion dance with art lovers in Chicago, “Lion dance is not only a traditional Chinese culture, but also a specialty in my hometown. When I was a child, there would be lion dances in every festival, but now it is less and less. In my opinion, lion dance is one of the most representative elements of China. So I want to present it with a new way through my creation, carry forward this disappearing traditional culture and make it an international culture symbol.
