Wu says Huang shows artistic mastery in this work, detailing ethnic costumes of people and the musical instruments they play, as well as the intricate patterns on a big red carpet.

At this exhibition one will see how the use of red, whether in real life or art, reflects the Chinese take on the material world and spirituality over generations, Wu adds.

"There are blessings for peace, prosperity and harmony. And there is symbolism of nobility and high morality. Red is like a cultural totem for the people of this land. It is a celebration of life," Wu says.
