COLOMBO, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- A three-day Chinese traditional art exhibition titled "Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Exhibition 2018" got underway in Sri Lanka's capital Colombo on Friday, aiming to strengthen cultural ties between the two countries.
The exhibition, which is held in the China Cultural Center in Colombo, has 400 contemporary calligraphy and painting works on display and is one of the largest exhibition of its kind to be held in the country.
The paintings have been done by six well-known Chinese artists from Beijing.
The Chief Guest of the event, Sarath Perera, Chairman of the Visual Art Advisory Committee in the Department of Cultural Affairs in Sri Lanka said this exhibition would shed light on China's culture among the local Sri Lankans and Sri Lankan artists would be able to learn more about Chinese calligraphy and paintings through such events.
"We get a lot of experience from Chinese artists because Asian Art is part of our university syllabus. So we hope to see more such events in the future," Perera said.
Liu Dong, an official from the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka said that such events would promote the pragmatic co-operation between China and Sri Lanka.
