The 2022 Dulwich Zhuhai Art Exhibition was successfully launched on May 20. We were more than happy to be able to celebrate the artwork of our brilliant art students from four Year Groups with our parents and staff in our new campus.


Titled with an open question of, “What is Art?”, the Art Exhibition prompted viewers to explore what they believe art could be and represent. With over 100 individual pieces on display, a great breadth and depth of skills and creative thinking of our young artists has transformed the basement level of the campus into an amazing gallery space.


Art is an intensely creative and personal subject. Each year at Dulwich Zhuhai, we see a vastly creative and individualized exhibition of work and this year was no exception to that.

The artworks represented in the art exhibition have ranged from 2D surface work to graphic, animation, sculpture, video and installation pieces. The high standard of the artwork bears witnesses to the hard work and determination of our art students to push past all creative norms. They have developed skills in mastering techniques, the discipline necessary to carry ideas through from inception to final pieces, and ultimately the confidence to express who they are and how they view the world.


Mother of our Y13 art student Yula W expressed her feelings during the exhibition, “This is my first time visiting the school’s annual art exhibition. I feel astonished and impressed by all the student artwork, including my daughter’s, especially how they dare to imagine and how good they are in interpreting themselves. Yula has been engaged in dancing and music a lot when she was young. I could never imagine how success she could be in art as well. I’m so proud of her.”


"I am incredibly proud of our Art students, knowing that they have had to work through sometimes challenging circumstances, with online learning at various points throughout the year, however, it has not lessened their ability to create and express." said Ms Candice van Buul, Head of Art at Dulwich Zhuhai.


To reflect back and answer the question about, “What is Art?”, we can take inspiration from Edward Degas, “Art is not what you see, but what An Artist makes others see.” At Dulwich Zhuhai, we firmly believe this is exactly what our young artists have done and will continuously pursue in their pathway to success, to Graduate Worldwise.


Last but not least, we would like to express our appreciation to the all the art students from Year 10 to Year 13, as well as our Art department, for their commitment in every creative success we were able to view throughout the annual art exhibition.
