Until now, they have successfully organized nine exhibitions. Their realist works were warmly received by the public. Being somewhat exotic, oil painting not only occupies an important position in the genre of the West but is also flourishing in China. The establishment of the Chinese Realism Oil Painting marks a new development in realist oil painting in the 21st century in China.
