Under the theme of "One World, One Family," the Shanghai International Paper Biennale has opened to the public at the city's Fengxian Museum, serving as a bridge of communication for paper art and artists between China and the rest of the world.

As China's largest paper art display, the exhibition embraces 110 works of paper-based art created by artists from 46 countries.

Of them, the exhibit "Crane Wings" created by young Chinese artist Liang Zhizhuo grabbed the attention of audiences. Inspired by the "Auspicious Crane" painted by Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty (960-1276), the artwork consists of more than 20 pairs of wings, some of which are stationary, while others can move up and down or open and close, creating a contrast between movement and stillness.

With both traditional Chinese artworks – including paper cuts, origami and paper carvings – and contemporary artworks on display, the exhibition is set to run until February 25, 2024.
