The landscape paintings on show include both colored and monochromatic. The colored works show his experiment of the qinglyu (blue-and-green), a unique genre of classical Chinese paintings of which a lot of blue and green are applied to create a majestic atmosphere.

Niu also does monochromatic works to present the harmony of layering varying shades of ink and his well use of lining.

His work is also blended with his understanding of playing guqin, the Chinese plucked zither, which has brought him further deeply into the mind of ancient scholars, who found shared aesthetic pursuit in the creation of painting, calligraphy, poetry and music.
