"My experience indicates that the Central Government began to train ethnic minority artistic talents soon after the founding of New China in 1949," aged Tibetan artist Chigya Dawa said.

Following the conclusion of the Second Forum on Development of China's Tibet held in Rome, an exhibition featuring 58 paintings by the Chinese Han and Tibetan artists kicked off Monday in northern Italy's Milan, showing the extraordinary sceneries and traditional folklores in Tibet.

During an exchange meeting before the exhibition, Tibetan artists had illustrated the Chinese Government's substantial support for Tibet's art development.

Born in 1946 in Ganzi Tibetan County, southwest China's Sichuan Province, Dawa has been engaging in arts for nearly 50 years. In 1956, he was sent to a class for ethnic minority groups in the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, a cradle for many ethnic minority artists.

"The exhibition has been well received in Italy. Many viewers proposed on the spot to buy exhibits. These works reflect Chinese artists' heartfelt wishes to Tibet, striking a chord with Italians and other Europeans," said Feng Yuan, vice chairman of the Fine Arts Association of the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles.

Entitled "Snow-Covered Plateau -- Chinese Painting Works," the exhibition was started in Rome and Milan on Oct. 23 and 26, respectively, displaying a total of 118 paintings depicting the magnificence of Tibet's natural scenery and the region's social and economic changes in the past five decades.
