CEAC, Xiamen, China

The Chinese European Art Center is delighted about presenting an exhibition of works made by the Netherlands’ artist Gustav Meist. Presenting his paintings in Xiamen is a particularly pleasant because of the artists’ profound connection with this town.

Gustav Meist worked as a teacher in the Xiamen University Art College. This work gave him the opportunity to get a deeper insight into Chinese art as well as an art and cultural exchange with Xiamens’ art students. This contact to China is clearly visible in Gustav Meist’s colorful paintings. Most of the art works show portraits in a very reduced way. The observer will find the painting “Matisse and I” next to “China” (2002) and “Nanjing. Portrait Xin Xin” (2002). The abstract forms of the arrangements and the rich in contrast of the colors unit them.
