In the 1980's, Dai engaged in professional silk carpet and tapestry design, among which adapted design "A Hundred Horses" became one of the world's best pieces of tapestry. Dai doubled as a gallery painter of Zhejiang Academy of Art (now renamed The China Academy of Art) from 1992 to 1998 and as a guest painter of the Shanghai office of Hong Kong Fu Hui Foundation around 2002, authoring and depicting the Biographical Paintings of "Portrait of the Wise Master", and "Portrait of the Master Jianzhen".

Now he is the executive director of Japan · Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Academy and the vice president of Jinou Art Academy.

 

[Artist-in-Residence Programme]

In 2016, the University initiated the Artist-in-Residence Programme to create an artistic atmosphere on campus and to elevate student's aesthetic taste. We regularly invite top artists from various fields to reside on campus, create artworks and hold workshops with students.

The programme may last 5-10 days or 1-2 months. Artists will work with or guide students to create or appreciate artworks through workshop or lectures. Artists will also take into account resources available off campus to contribute towards our development
