Leaders of the Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Supervisory Commission of Zhejiang Province, the Publicity Department of the CPC Zhejiang Provincial Committee, Zhejiang Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism, the Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Supervisory Commission of Jiaxing, the Publicity Department of the CPC Jiaxing Municipal Committee, China Artists Association and Tongxiang Municipal People’s Government attended the first exhibition, and enjoyed it with great interest.
As the organizer of the exhibition, Zhejiang Library aims to not only popularize the artistic form of comics among readers, but also help them comprehend the profound meanings behind comics. Art comes from life and goes beyond it, of which extraction and generalization are its means and acceptance and support from the people are its weapons. The determination to combat corruption shown in the form of comics will surely strike a chord.
Tongxiang, hometown of Feng Zikai, a famous comic artist, is honored as “Hometown of Chinese Comics”. To coordinate with the exhibition and win greater recognition among the people for the artistic form of comics, the organizer will also give themed lectures on “Zikai’s Comics” and “New Paintings of Ancient Poems” on August 3.
