A new traditional painting exhibition got going in Chengdu on Saturday. "Various Tastes of Brush and Ink," gathers 11 painters from across China in the capital of Sichuan Province to show off their works.

These paintings, are more than pretty pictures. They're meant to show that the younger generation hasn't forgotten about age-old traditions.

Artist Liu Sanyu said, "This exhibition demonstrates that the new generation of painters, hasn't forgotten traditional Chinese culture. Although we have adopted different art elements from other parts of the world, we insist that the essence remain. "

Maintaining cultural roots can be quite the challenge in the world of today. But these paintings show that contemporary thinking and observations of the modern world can still be expressed through the traditional form.

A visitor said, "As an old artist, I feel that the new generation of painters have great potential and creativity. They study the tradition and reform it. That's a responsibility of all artists."
