Beverly Hills, California, USA. 26th May, 2021. The Los Angeles Beverly Arts (LABA) and the LABA Los Angeles International Art Festival are proud to announce a unique art event called "Inextricably Linked: The Art of Jiannan Huang." The private viewing event (or vernissage) of his artwork took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Three of his original oil paintings were on display for invited guests to view. The artwork that was on display was "Inextricably Linked," "The Sky of Sky," and "Earth Code."
Jiannan Huang, also known as Miao Jian, is one of the World's finest artists in oil painting and traditional Chinese ink painting. He is Gold Medal-winner of the Global Charity Alliance and was awarded the title of "Earl" by the Indonesian Royal Family. Huang has been on the Hurun China Art List published by the Hurun Research Institute for seven years. In 2020, Jiannan ranked 3rd on the Hurun Art List for Chinese artists and 19th on the Hurun Global Art List as one of the top artists in the World. Jiannan is ranked 21st in the "Top 500 Global Contemporary Artists" at Artprice, the authoritative European and American art website. In his early years, Jiannan walked more than 38,000 kilometers across China, traveled north and south, and went deep into desert villages and towns to see the country and experience life for creating his art.
Due to travel restrictions, artist Jiannan Huang was not able to attend the event in Beverly Hills. However, he was able to join by video conference to interact with guests from his studio in Beijing, China, making this a truly international art and cultural exchange event.
The event was sponsored by LABA and the LABA Los Angeles International Art Festival, the Royal Society of St. George, California Branch, the United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA), and the US Art Bank. The event was held to promote international art and cultural exchange and the upcoming LABA International Art Festival.
Today's viewing event was hosted by visionary and philanthropist Princess Karen Cantrell, the rotating chairperson of the LABA International Art Festival 2021-2022. The keynote speaker was Mr. Barry Simon, President of the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA), Southern California.
