Aristotle once said: “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” We believe that at the heart of any touching artwork is surely artists with passion and inspiration connected to something greater.
In ancient China, artists looked to the divine for inspiration. They would meditate to seek virtue and harmony. They believed that to create art that uplifts, they must first cultivate goodness and be one with nature.
Chinese culture is also known as “divinely inspired” culture, and is the only culture in the world to have a continuous recorded history of 5,000 years. It has left behind valuable literary classics, historical documents, cultural relics, and national records reflecting its immense scope.
Furthermore, alongside martial arts endures a long legacy of different performing arts, including different forms of Chinese opera, a wide kaleidoscope of dramatic traditions, a musical tradition featuring many unique instruments, and a plethora of dance forms, including the sublime, Classical Chinese dance.
We believe that genuine traditional Chinese culture has great value for our society and people today. Our mission is to revive this rich cultural heritage through art and performance. We wish to highlight artists with a heart to inspire and uplift their audiences and create new classics while honoring our divinely inspired traditions.
