Changing natural scenery has always been a favor of landscape painters, whatever techniques and methods they employ.

Beijing-based artist Jiang Hongwei has created a lithograph series, in which he uses the gongbi (meticulous brushwork) skill to depict dynamic scenes of four seasons. He names the series 24 Solar Terms, a knowledge system that ancient Chinese developed to summarize different climate phenomena. The system provides a time frame for people to conduct agrarian activities, everyday life and festive events.

Now art lovers can purchase the series on China Everbright Bank's online store and via its WeChat account.

The products are on offer under a five-year cooperation between the bank and Phoenix Link, a creativity company affiliated to Hong Kong-based Phoenix Television, according to their joint announcement on March 20 in Beijing.

The two sides will launch more similar products relating to Chinese cultural traditions on China Everbright Bank's digital platforms. For example, they plan to work with Beijing's Palace Museum and a dozen of artists to create more creativity objects showing the cultural depth of 24 Solar Terms.
