More than 50 pieces of oil paintings from a devout Buddhist painter Zheng Zesheng is now showcased in the Beijing-based Today Art Museum.

The artist made it his priority to showcase a gigantic piece, titled "37 Billion Years Series: The Rainbow Kingdom".

"Eventually, people all long for a life as graceful as life in the heaven. However, we, Chinese people, are now surrounded by fog and haze, which hinders us from discovering and appreciating beauty in our life. So I hope this painting would open up new horizons for them."

Zheng once said he thinks "nature is his best teacher".

Zheng is also widely seen as an odd man in China's painting circles. He did not receive any professional painting lessons. Even if he won recognition in painting, he did not intend to seriously pursue it.

He explained while his business went well, commercial success did not bring him happiness. But it was in these Buddhist holy lands that finally gave him meaning to life.

His ongoing exhibition, which is composed of the paintings that he created from 2006 to 2016, will run until October 24th.
