Road to Beijing Art Exhibition was one mind-blowing experience with its deliberate layout and setting, coupled with the good response from art purists and press media. Held at the Shangri-La Hotel on 15 - 28 May 2008, local actor Qi Yu Wu was one of the special guests appearing in the event. The empathetic actor initiated a charity movement on 19 May 2008 for the Sichuan Earthquake victims; for which the artworks were generously donated by personnels from all walks of life: Professor Arthur Lim, Mr. Lee Khoon Choy, Mr. Jeffrey Tan, Mr. Hadi Tanaga, Mr. Daniel Yun, Mr. John Erdos and Ms Jasmine Tay from MAD.
Zeng Fanzhi: Idealism is a visual journey into the realms we ourselves are never willing to encounter. It also provides an insight into the works of one of China’s leading artists in the Contemporary Asian art scene. The exhibition held in July 2007 was organized by the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) in collaboration with our previous infamous brand Jasmine Fine Arts.
This exhibition of 36 major works includes those from his celebrated series Hospital, Meat, Mask and Portraits. The exhibition also features new works from the Untitled (Night) series that have never been exhibited. Idealism is an exhibition that captures the tension between greatness and emptiness, joyousness and alienation, sentiments echoed in Zeng's powerful expressionist style.
Zeng said, “The gallery spaces at the Singapore Art Museum were unique to me in that they resonate with history as they were once classrooms of a school. I feel that as an institution of learning, the notions of idealism must have been held in high esteem by the teachers and students of the school working towards a future that would be filled with both ups and downs. But despite this uncertainty, idealism was still a spark that fired many imaginations. These new works I created for the exhibition is an expression of my self towards the gallery spaces at the Singapore Art Museum.”
Held by MAD's former establishment, Jasmine Fine Art curated an exhibition of Chinese contemporary artist Yang JinSong(b. 1971) in 2007.
The artwork showcased included the artist's major work of painting lotus, watermelon, ashtray, gourd and more.

In the Singapore Artfair 2006, Jasmine Fine Art showcased the major paintings and sculptures of Chinese contemporary artists- Zhou ChunYa, He Sen, Wang GuangYi, Yue MinJun, Tang ZhiGang and more. The space provided an altogether enriching experience to those who held apprehensive thoughts for this upcoming sensation in the art world. Ms Jasmine Tay wanted the cosy setting and atmosphere to bring evoking feelings to art lovers who could appreciate art's pureness and genuinity and be able to share their experience and collections with fellow purists and friends.
The famous 'green dog' sculpture of Zhou ChunYa was displayed at a corner giving out strong and ferocious vibes of the artist's passed away pet.
