    In 2001, Mr. Qi Fengge has initiated an activity name “Challenge and Approach- the Nomination Exhibition and Academic Seminar of Chinese Contemporary Youth Print Artists”, and it has attracted extensive attention of the print circle and brought about profound impact. In his speech, Mr. Qi Fengge remarked, “How time flies. 15 years has passed and the artists we have in here have become the pace-setters of domestic print circle or the representative painters of some painting. Within the period, they have been doing their utmost on their art progress and  exploring the possibilities in print art. Many of them have expanded the domain of painting and made remarkable artistic achievement and become distinct artists. They have made prominent contributions to the development of China’s painting art and the undertaking of print education.”
 
   The 15 years in the new century marks the multi-dimentional and stable progress of Chinese printmaking since its transformation at the end of last century; and the updating of artistic ideology, the perfection of techniques, the reformation of patterns, the full expression of personalities and the establishment of individuality. Despite the fact that their creation might not reflect the panorama of the development of Chinese printmaking, to some extent, they are telling people the course of Chinese printmaking art within the 15 years, especially the progressing trend of print art in colleges in the new century.  
 
 
    In the purpose of reviewing their development in painting, unfolding their harvests within the 15 years, drawing lessons from their experience, and  boosting the all-round development of Chinese contemporary print art, together we are here to host the exhibition of the 9 artists’ works and the review of their academic literature.
         

 
 
    The opening ceremony has come to a successful end. We hope that the 9 artists here, in company with one another, will be exploring the new possibilities in print art in the future, and making greater contribution to the growth of Chinese print art and the education in print art.
