─ Opens July 12 through October 19 at Frost Art Museum ─
A Tribute to Chinese Master Artist Xu Beihong  in Honor of the 120th Anniversary of his Birth
Chinese crossover artist Simon Ma’s new world tour exhibition “Heart • Water • Ink” makes its U.S. premiere in Miami July 12 – Oct. 19 at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University. A tribute to Chinese master artist Xu Beihong, the exhibition is curated by Dr. Carol Damian, Director and Chief Curator of The Frost Art Museum.

The public is invited to an opening reception on Saturday, July 12, 5:00-8:00 p.m. featuring live freehand brushwork demonstrations by Mr. Ma. This new show follows the success of Ma’s previous world tours (“Ink • Brush • Heart,” shown at the Venice Biennale in 2013, and “The Soul – Drago + Cavallo”) with a return to his preferred subject of nature and his reverence of its power and majesty.

“Heart • Water • Ink” features more than 70 artworks including Ma’s paintings, freehand brushwork, Chinese ink hybrids, graffiti art, Chinese calligraphy sculptures, dimensional stroke and lacquer paintings, 3-D art video, projections, Murano glass, and large-scale dragon and horse sculptures.

As part of the Miami leg of this world tour, Ma will present a seminar about Chinese water ink that will be open to the public and students. The exhibition also will feature an equine-themed short film “China Dream,” an homage to Master Xu Beihong (broadcast on National Geographic and Discovery), plus an equine-themed jewelry collection co-created with Chow Tai Fook.
