Seychellois artist participates in Africa-China art exhibition

Seychellois artist participates in Africa-China art exhibition ( In his capacity as Seychelles' Resident Ambassador to China and on behalf of the Ambassadors of Botswana, Rwanda, Ghana, and Congo, Mr. Philippe Le Gall was invited to attend and launch an art exhibition by five African and Indian Ocean artists, including Alcide Libanotis, at Nanjing Academy of calligraphy and painting in Jiangsu province on November 2.

The exhibition was officially co-opened by the Assistant Director, International Division, Ministry of Culture, Mr. Zhao Haisheng, and the Director General of Nanjing Municipal Bureau of Culture, Broadcasting, Television, Press and Publication, Mr. Chen Guangya.

This exhibition followed a 2-month, artist-in-residence program organized under the aegis of the Forum of Cooperation China-Africa-FOCAC. It is to be noted that Alcide Libanotis studied in Hangzhou in the 80s, and it was his first visit to China after more than 20 years.

According to Ambassador Le Gall, the Seychellois artist played a leading role in his group, and the work he produced in China reflects both his very distinctive Seychellois identity and a strong interest in the observation of Chinese character and life style.

The Ministry of Social Development and Culture, as well as the Seychelles National Arts Council and the Chinese Embassy in Victoria, contributed to the success of Seychelles' participation in this event.
