Giacomo Bruni from Italy is one of nearly 40 international students who presented their graduation artwork in the China Academy of Art's annual graduation exhibition, World Tree: CAA Graduation Season.

Bruni, who studied Chinese landscape painting at the CAA, obtained his master's degree this summer. For his graduation submission, he devised a Chinese painting on which visitors were able to walk. His aim was to eliminate the barrier between visitor and painting, allowing body and spirit to merge into the natural landscape depicted in the painting.

"Through this interaction, I hope visitors can find a connection with nature in the art, and experience a sense of immersion," Bruni says.

Nearly 3,000 young artists, who are this year's graduates of the CAA, transformed the cityscape of Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, last month, with work of various kinds themed on topics such as woods, jungles and forest islands.
