Two Chinese artists, Tang Weimin and Gu Tianlong, are now exhibiting their oil paintings on Tibet in Beijing. Although they portray the same landscape, the artists differ in their style. While one romanticize the grandeur of the region, the other takes a realistic perspective.

Gao Peng, curator of the Beijing-based Today Art Museum, helped them arrange this exhibition titled "All Roads Lead to Tibet".

"Tang Weimin represents a romantic painting style. All his paintings on young Tibetan girls and local landscape are totally from his imagination since he's never been there. So Tibetan girls under his brush all appear with pure aestheticism."

A small group of galleries in the United States and China have collected Tang Weimin's works.
In contrast to Tang Weimin's works, Gu Tianlong's paintings reflect a more realistic technique. His paintings are divided into two series, one with Tibet as the theme while the other focuses on gold miners. Gao Peng explains again:

"A series of works from Gu Tianlong, called the Dark Gold Miners, conveyed the dark tone using a black mountain as the backdrop. These miners all look optimistic despite their arduous living conditions. Their optimistic spirit inspires the artist, and I think it is an important element of the realistic painting that is thought provoking to both artists and visitors."

Both artists are similar as they both use indirect ways of painting in multiple layers to create a feeling of simple but deep and heavy texture in their paintings.

The exhibition, showing the Chinese contemporary artists' approach to real life and culture in their artwork, is open to the public till November 20 on the first and second floor of Today Art Museum.
