SHAN SHUI
Mountain and Water painting magazine

This magazine aims to give voice to contemporary Chinese and non-Chinese scholars and artists with a studying experience in China.
Our purpose is to create a cultural bridge between two great cultures, in order to establish a rich and fruitful dialogue on Chinese painting.

Chinese mountain and water painting is one of the main artistic expressions in China, characterized by more than 1500 years of evolution and revolutions, and has found a new golden age of creativity and expression in the contemporary times.

This magazine introduces some modern and contemporary Chinese artists, the theories of Chinese painting and the views of Environmental Aesthetics, in a way that is approachable for all audiences, from specialized scholars to freethinkers who might be interested in the field of Chinese art and culture.

Our hope is to promote an artistic expression that can have a positive impact on our lives, enabling us to cross certain limits subconsciously imposed by the Western culture, concerning the concept of reality, our existence, our place in this world and how we relate to it.

Every cultural system has found a way to respond to these basic questions, but the answers are all different, and art is one of the deepest expressions that embodies all of these diverse conceptions.
