On November 29th, his Excellency Mr. Chen Xu, ambassador of the People’s Republic of
China spoke a warm welcome and Mrs. Carolien Gehrels, loco mayor of the municipality
of Amsterdam opened the exposition of the two artists Aat Veldhoen and Man Kin Ho at
the Museum Jan van der Togt in Amstelveen.
Aat Veldhoen, a well known contemporary artist in Amsterdam is a long time friend of the
young Chinese artist Man Kin Ho. The traditional Chinese inkt technics and the special
mix of the old Chinese tradition, sometimes with European subjects give a delicate flavour
to the work of Man Kin Ho.
The Chinese Embassy is well known for the support of Chinese artists living in The
Netherlands and that concerns all sorts of fields from painting to fashion.
