BUCHAREST, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- The "Art Safari 2019" art exhibition in Romania Friday held the opening ceremony of its International Pavilion which houses China Youth Contemporary Art Exhibition.

The annual Art Safari, held under the patronage of Bucharest City Hall, is the most influential art exhibition in Romania and one of the largest and most exciting art events in Eastern Europe.

Ioana Ciocan, general manager of the Art Safari, said at the ceremony that the organizer set up a separate International Pavilion for the first time and dedicated it to China.

According to her, the Chinese modern artists "deserve" to be the first exhibitors of the International Pavilion, as there are frequent cultural exchanges between Romania and China.

Chinese Ambassador Jiang Yu expressed her gratitude to the Romanian organizer for highlighting China's contemporary art.

Jiang spoke highly of the continuous development of bilateral relations since diplomatic relations were established 70 years ago, adding that the in-depth Sino-Romanian cultural exchanges have injected new vitality into their long-standing friendship.

The China Youth Contemporary Art Exhibition, organized by China's Network of International Culturalink Entities, displayed 52 oil paintings, sculptures, installations and images of 29 Chinese young artists.

According to curator Ji Zhongpeng, these works reflect the new thinking of Chinese contemporary young artists on history, society and values through different perspectives and expressions, demonstrating their spiritual vitality and creativity.

An art lover who only gave her name as Cristina, said she was amazed at the works of Chinese contemporary art on display. "The beauty of art lies in its special energy and excellent works can be interpreted without any language, producing a strong reverberation in the hearts of the audience."

After visiting the pavilion of Chinese contemporary art, Petru Lucaci, president of the Romanian Artists Union and also a famous modern artist, said that he always attaches great importance to Chinese art and is happy to see these great Chinese works here, which have given him a new and deeper understanding of Chinese contemporary art.
