China embosses its mark on Abu Dhabi book fair. China is the Guest of Honour at this year’s Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) and one could experience that it has made its presence felt from the moment one enters the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) grounds, where the event is being held. A giant wall of books is acting as a canvas for Chinese artist and teacher, Jack Lee, at Hall 11’s entrance, where the China Pavilion is located. He has chosen to paint the Great Wall of China on the stack of books and hopes to finish it by the end of the fair on May 2. “I wanted to do something new. This is a great way to speak to people about China, using a brush,” said Lee, who lives in Abu Dhabi.
