March 2019

Hainan is an island province of China and situates at the nation’s southernmost end. It has a tropical climate all year round and is home to over 4, 500 kinds of plants, making it a popular destination for artists as well as tourists.

Song Fusheng was invited on a tour to Danzhou, a city in the northwest of the island. The deputy chairman of Hainan Provincial Federation of Literary and Art Circles, Wei Wang accompanied them on the visit to Dongpo Academy. Also called Dongpo Shuyuan, the academy was originally built in 1098 in memory of the Song dynasty literary figure, Su Dongpo, who was exiled to Hainan.

The unique local flora and fauna have also inspired Song in his paintings. A number of gatherings were organised and Song met with local artists who shared the same passion for Chinese brush painting.

Here are some of the paintings Song created during his visit to Hainan province.
