From the 30th of August to the 6th of September 2010 – National Art Museum of China
After over thirty-year artistic practice, the first solo exhibition of Xue Song —— “Rock series: Xue Song” will kick off its opening at the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) on August 29 and last till September 6.

Born in Chongqing, Weng Xuesong is his full name. Learning to paint since childhood has prepared for him a well-grounded modeling skill. He is easy-going and peaceful, immersing for years in self-cultivation and painting practice. He is familiar with various contemporary artistic forms; and in recent years, he gets down to oil painting to present and deliver the lively spirit and vitality of which the ancient literati of China were in persuit. Rock and animal are two major subjects of his painting, in which he unveils a spiritual world where the atmosphere created by the painting is conversational with the soul of its creator. Following neo-realism, pop political, gaudy art and art brooding in the consumption and ditital era, Xue Song’s painting develops a brand new artistic style featuring the nature and individuality of Chiense culture. His representative Rock Series embodies the traditional and contemporary Chinese humanistic philosophies as well as high wisdom and essence of life.
