A duo exhibition opened on Jan 15 in Ningbo, Zhejiang province, showcasing over 150 paintings by Chinese artist Luo Qi and Spanish artist Rafael Romero.

The exhibition is being held at Ningbo's Tianyige Museum and will run until Feb 25. The two artists have distinctive styles and approaches to painting.

Having taught at the China Academy of Art for over 30 years, Luo’s paintings resemble engravings and are characterized by their simplicity.

At the exhibition, Luo's paintings feature a combination of Chinese pictograms and medieval Western manuscripts.

Romero, a professor at the University of Barcelona, has been focusing on traditional and contemporary painting techniques, materials, and processes for more than 30 years. He is proficient in using forms, lines and colors to express his aesthetic ideas. He is also inspired by the brushstrokes prevalent in Chinese paintings. 

Romero's artworks at the exhibition were all completed in Ningbo. He wanted to share with locals his unique world of colors, featuring fish, swimmers, and ships that he had seen in the city.
