Untitled, oil on canvas - the guest favourite and top selling piece

We were proud to present the work of Australian artist John Svoronos today on the outskirts of Beijing near Dashanzi international art space.

The space near Dashanzi

Around 70 people turned out from the ex-pat and local community to view John's art - a fusion of luscious colour, classic strokes, dream-like nudes dancing in floral splashes, serene photography showcasing shadows and reflections, and some in-your-face drama.

Guests nibbled bruscetta and home-made paté, enjoyed a sip of Australian wine or bubbles, and swayed to the smooth tunes of jazz outfit Blue in Red before offers for art began sneaking in.

John sold several pieces on the day, with the firm guest favorite selling for an impressive sum. He also sold smaller pieces and several photographs.

John and his wonderful wife Christine will be moving home to Australia, where they'll take up residence in Canberra. They are certainly going to be missed on the Beijing scene.
