A total of 60 pieces of Chinese ink wash paintings were exhibited on Monday at the National Art Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).

The paintings, which are the latest works by artists from the China National Academy of Painting (CNAP), were shown to the public at the opening of an exhibition themed "Enthusiasm for Ink Wash Painting."

Ink wash paintings are an important carrier of Chinese culture, Vice President of the CNAP Zhang Jiangzhou said at the opening ceremony, voicing hope that the audience can recognize contemporary qualities in traditional Chinese ink art, and understand the unique quality and profound connotation of Chinese culture.

In recent years, the relationship between China and BiH has shown a momentum of rapid development and practical cooperation in various areas has been carried out, said Zhou Yan, political counselor of the Chinese Embassy in BiH.

In order to promote mutual understanding between the two peoples, the Chinese Embassy in BiH will hold a series of cultural activities, followed by this exhibition, Zhou said.
