Egypt's capital Cairo embraces a seven-day Chinese fine art exhibition that is meant to promote mutual cultural ties between the two nations.

Six artists from the Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts showcased their works at the Art without Borders exhibition which is being held at the famed Gezira Art Centre since Wednesday.

The exhibition, which is co-organized by the Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts and the Chinese Culture Center in Cairo, has attracted dozens of Egyptian visitors who showed admiration of the Chinese art.

"The exhibition is really marvelous. Today I saw diversity of arts in China with different artistic trends," Omar Sameh, a civil engineer from Cairo, told Xinhua.

Sahem said that it is important for cultures to meet at some point, adding that the cultural exchange between Egypt and China is beneficial for both peoples.

"It is my first time to see Chinese art works in real life. Such an exhibition enabled me to get closer to Chinese arts and culture," he said.
