HIRAYAMA is exhibiting 18 pieces of his Nihonga with Japanese beauty and the Silk Road as his themes and 30 drawings of the world's cultural and natural heritages registered by UNESCO, such as Dunhuang and the Yellow River.

KIM is exhibiting 25 major pieces mainly with his theme of“harmonism” based on the east-cultural principles of the positive and negative, expressing traditional beauty appearing in traditional dances, national treasures and relics, etc. and also the irony of war and peace.
