Passengers on board Flight MH370 included a group of 30 Chinese artists, family members and art employees who had attended a three-day painting and calligraphy exhibition where the artists' work was displayed.

Ma Yong'an, chairman of the Beijing-based China Calligraphy Artists Association, which co-organized the event in Kuala Lumpur, told China Daily that 13 people from the group of artists are members of the association. One of the members was the association's Vice-Chairman Meng Gaosheng, the group's leader.

The exhibition featured a lineup of artists from around China who demonstrated their proficiency in calligraphy, oil paintings and ink art.
