A comics exhibition was unveiled in Sydney on Wednesday, offering glimpses of the city of Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, and the Chinese animation industry.

The Irresistible Comics 2022-Chengdu Excellent Cartoon and Animation Works Exhibition, co-hosted by the China Cultural Center in Sydney and Chengdu Municipal Bureau of Culture, Broadcast-TV and Tourism, presented more than 80 original artworks from Chengdu.

Through different types of artistic approaches, the exhibition showcased posters of Chinese animated productions and original selections featuring Chengdu's culture, food and landmarks, such as panda, hotpot and the West Pearl Tower.

Many artists also shared their enthusiasm for Chinese mythology, literature and martial arts in their designs.

"Chengdu is known as the 'capital of animation' in China. Many artists and production houses are committed to integrating traditional Chinese culture with modern art, developing products with original IP," said Xiao Xiayong, director of the China Cultural Center in Sydney.

As 2022 coincides with the 100th anniversary of Chinese animation development, Xiao said the exhibition will become a platform for building mutual learning for the animation industry in both countries.

The exhibition will last until Oct. 26.
