Speaking

I prefer to look the painting, especially Chinese painting. But, all of my friends don’t like Chinese painting, most of them like western painting or design. Yes, but not often because most of museum display the western painting or new media or performance art. But, for me the biggest impression for me is a painting by Shan Gao. But, it’s a bad impression because all of the painting are printed. So it’s a bad impression. Most of the Chinese painting are paint flower or bird or fish or the river, the mountain.

Most of my friends like modern artists. I’m a little confused about the timeline of the western artists. My favourite western artist is, I forgot.

I prefer paintings, especially Chinese paintings. But, all of my friends don’t like Chinese paintings, most of them prefer western paintings or designs. Yes, but not often because most of museums display the western paintings, new media or performance arts. But, for me, the artwork by Shan Gao left a big impression on me.  But, it’s a negative impression because all of the paintings are printed. So it’s bad. Most Chinese artists paint flowers, birds, fish rivers, or mountains.

Writing

Last month I watched a movie which is named ” The Legend of 1900″. It is written by a real story and it’s pretty good. The leading man is a pianist who lives in a boat/ship on the sea in his hole life. He is left in the boat from his parents when he was a baby, and be took care by a worker man who is work in the boat. One day he tries to play the piano, and falls in love. Since then he play the piano to the passengers in the boat every day. He ever wins the “Best bruce player” in a competition with a bruce artist. But he has never left the boat and the sea until he dies in his 35 years old. Because he think he can’t survive in the other world ,even though it is a real world. In the end, he dies in the burning case of the boat. I enjoy the music of the piano in this movie and inspire the artist very well.

Revised: 

Last month, I watched a movie which is called ” The Legend of 1900″. It is based on a real/true story and it’s pretty good. The leading man/protagonist is a pianist who spends his whole life on a ship that has been sailing in the sea. He was left/abandoned on the ship by his parents when he was a baby, and he was taken care of by a worker on the ship. One day, he tried to play the piano, and falls in love. Since then he would play the piano to the passengers on the ship every day. He even won the “Best Blues Player” in a competition with a Blues artist. But he never left the ship and the sea until his death when he was 35 years old. Because he believed that he couldn’t survive in the other world, even though it is the real world. In the end, he died because the ship burnt down. I enjoyed the piano music/ piano soundtrack from this movie and the artist is inspiring.
