“Today, there is a famous restaurant on the southeast corner of bakuo street, which is called ma-skyes-a-ma", which means "girl". The outer wall of the restaurant is painted yellow, so it has another more famous name "yellow house". The reason why this place is famous is that it is said that the Sixth Dalai Lama cangyang Jiacuo often changed into casual clothes to drink and sing poems and meet his lover after night. The most famous love song of cangyang Jiacuo was written here:

From the top of the mountain in the East
The bright white moon came out
An unborn mother's face
In the heart has gradually appeared ~

This poem is the most faithful of all cangyang Jiacuo love songs so far. "Unborn mother" is a literal translation of the Tibetan word ma-skyes-a-ma, which roughly means "Maiden" in Chinese. However, some ingenious descendants transliterated ma-skyes-a-ma into majiami, saying that it was the name of a lover of cangyang Jiacuo, and thus created some romantic love stories. The word "ma-skyes-a-ma" does not refer to "a mother who has never given birth" or "a girl", but describes a lover's kindness to herself as a mother - although she has not given birth to herself.

A soul painter with Tibetan mysterious temperament. Zeng Kun, contemporary artist, Zeng Kun art director In recent years, an independent artist integrating visual art and oil painting has been rare in Tibetan painting circles.The style is mysterious, meaningful, elegant and unique. It is one of the most remarkable contemporary artists in the new generation of Tibetan painting.Once lived in Tibet, he has been trying to express contemporary art and cross-border cooperation in visual art in Tibet. He is praised by the Tibetan art circles as "the soul painter with the most mysterious temperament of Tibet", and Tibetan friends even call him "monk artist". He has formed a unique artistic style and language with his unique artistic concept. He takes heart as the foundation and art as the way. While art in different fields is interwoven and collided, he creates and perceives the world with his soul and love. He insists on traveling around all the year round, walking among the sacred mountains and lakes on the snowy plateau, and feeling the great beauty of the world ! Co Artist: Jintian Ye In 2019, he began to create Tibetan oil paintings such as “ma-skys-a-ma“, "Youth Series", "dream empty flower series", "Nyingchi peach flower series", "gangrinboqi Sumeru" and "Gesang flower series"

About the exhibition

Art is a language that doesn’t need translation. For a long time, art has played an important role in the communication between China and other countries. In the context of economic globalization, cultures from all over the world collide and fuse with each other, forming a multi-cultural network. Chinese culture and various cultures of other countries meet here, forming a strong and diverse artistic atmosphere As globalization makes the cultural and artistic exchanges between countries more frequent and more closely connected, the optimization of the international artistic ecological environment also provides new opportunities for the evolution of art. Art is enriched by exchanges and mutual learning; the development of art requires international exchanges and cooperation, the active participation of artists from all countries, the sharing of ideas, the collision of hearts and the blending of emotions.This initiative is hosted by the Sino-Canada Alliance of Arts and Culture,York University Centre for Asian Research, Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology, the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts gallery, and the School of Visual Communication Design of LAFA, with funds from the Canada-China Initiative Grant from York Centre for Asian Research, and Double first-class project approved by Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts.
