About This Project

Chrysanthos Color Company Limited in collaboration with Professor He of the Guangxi Arts University were commissioned to construct this magnificent mural for the main foyer of a new government building in Nanning. Professor He, well known in China for his murals, was the architect of the design which depicts major cultural and historical attractions in the Guangxi region. The design took 6 months of planning with the government. Once the design was complete, six senior students supervised by Professor He, constructed the mural tile by tile in relief in the ceramics department of the University over a period of 3 months. Once complete the mural was transported to the government building and 3 workers under supervision of Professor He assembled the mural on the wall. Chrysanthos for the project supplied all of the colors, clay tiles and assisted with technical issues. The mural when complete was 9 m long and 2.6 m high. The mural was unveiled in May 2014 at the opening ceremony of the new government building.


Following the successful construction of this mural, Professor He has now introduced a new subject at the university for students wanting to learn this art. The subject can be taken as part of an arts degree at the Nanning Arts University and commenced in the second half of 2014.


Professor He with Chrysanthos are in the process of initiating another new government project in China which is due for completion in 2015.
