Willow Gallery is pleased to present their premier exhibition “Niko Nikolaidis and Ding Zhangyu: Emerging” this Dec. 3rd. This is both artists’ first joint exhibition in Beijing. Well-known international art expert Nour Nouri is invited as the curator. Niko Nikolaidis is a young Greek pop artist. His artworks have been exhibited in international art fairs and museums around the world. His use of colors and the splash of emotion on canvas is something spectacular. His artworks are especially favored by the young generation. He takes his motifs from everyday life, the fashion world, and classic art.
Ding Zhangyu, a young Chinese artist from Yunnan Province, is educated in both traditional Chinese painting and western oil painting. His ideas mostly come from nature or the nature-within. He is a story-teller in his art. You should see all the elements one by one and then join them together in their metaphorical or symbolic way and read the story in your heart and mind.
Willow Gallery (endorsed by ArtAdvisor) was founded by Doki Gao and Drew Morrow in Songzhuang, Beijing. The message of the willow tree is to adjust with life, rather than fighting it. Willow Gallery is based on having a global perspective, focusing on the promotion of emerging young artists, the cultivation of new generation collectors and the popularization of contemporary art. By exhibiting these two prominent emerging artists from West and East, Willow Gallery is bringing together two different styles to create a new atmosphere. Special thanks to Pashmin Art Gallery (Hamburg) for the contributions. The exhibition will continue until Mar. 3rd, 2019.
