This exhibition at the Yu Shuang Art Museum in Hanzhong, Northwest China's Shaanxi Province, shows the core ideas of Chinese artist Li Yushuang through many of his new creations, documents, scripts, literature and digital artworks, which are on display for the first time.

Seated inside the Qinling Mountains, an area with stunning landscapes and home to thousands of species, the Yu Shuang Art Museum was built to host the artworks and life studies of Li, whose artistic sensibilities was the perfect match for the Qinling Mountains.

Born in 1935, Li is the son of China's modern painting master Li Keran, who spent 70 years exploring nature in his own art.

In the 1940s, Li Keran proposed the idea to rediscover the source of the art through sketches of nature. His son Li Yushuang inherited this idea. The younger Li sought inspiration from mountains and rivers, slowly establishing his own interpretation of art and nature.

The Yu Shuang Art Museum is not only a home to the artist's creations, but also a leading rural art museum that works closely with local organizations on issues such as rural development. 

Multidisciplinary art and diversity are topics that the museum will continue to tackle with its exhibitions in the future.
