In one of the best known texts attributed to him, Xiao Yao You (Wandering Beyond), Zhuang Zhou, or Zhuangzi, the master of philosophy who lived around the fourth and third centuries BC, believed that to achieve ultimate spiritual freedom, one should live without any desire. This Taoist take on life inspires artists and is reflected in their works.

An Invitation to a Carefree Wandering, an exhibition now on at Great Wall Hua Xia Winery in Qinhuangdao, Hebei province, shows dozens of ink-brush works by six artists, whose landscape and figure paintings and calligraphic pieces express a pursuit of spirituality and boundlessness.

In their creations shown until Sept 26, the artists share a romantic style that marks Zhuangzi's texts. The exhibition was opened along with the launch of a new red wine in tribute to the thinker.
