Few times, or almost never, a Brazilian museum has the chance to exhibit the works of a Chinese artist, despite all the Chinese influence in Brazil, since the colonial era, with the Companhia das Indias Orientais (Orient Indian Company), in the practices and customs which were incorporated into the culture of this country, in the collection of statues with candid influence of Chinese traces. Now, we are before the world of Li Zijian, this artist with mastery of painting, of acute and narrative flavor, has brought us flagrant situations of the daily life of his county.
A painting full of emotion, grandiloquently, which he calls it "Humanity and Love". Remorseful humanity for rescuing the condition of Mankind in his infinity variety of manifestations. Love of who seeks to perpetuate the instant and, with it, the understanding for Mankind that, in the West as well as in the East, as port of the same species, shares the same goals, same solitude, same happiness. This way, the painting of Li Zijian, as the discovered the Chinese man and his circumstances, it telling us also about the universal Man, to confirm with his art all these moments, and his own seeking moment, reaffirming the tragic condition of love which is compassion and obligation.
