Sichuan Fine Arts Institute

Sichuan Fine Arts Institute (SFAI) (Chinese: 四川美术学院; pinyin: Sìchuān měishù xuéyuàn) is a public fine arts university located in Chongqing, China. Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, with a history of over 64 years, located at the mountainous municipal city ――Chongqing, is one of the four most prominent art academies in China and the only one in the south-west China.

Sichuan Fine Arts Institute has a very bright history in the creation of art and deep research. Numerous high quality art works have been created by the teachers in SCFAI. In the 1950s and 1960s, the institute was symbolized by hand-craft arts. In the 1970s, it was sculpture, especially the most famous group statues, the “Rent Collecting Courtyard”. And in the 1980s is oil painting, such as our president Mr. Luo Zhongli’s master piece " My Father”, etc. The institute enjoys great prestige both domestically and internationally. These excellent art works have become the milestones in contemporary Chinese art. Since the 1990s, many teachers and students have gained awards that are both nationwide and international, they also got opportunities to make their works exhibited to the world. At present, it’s been establishing cultural exchange relation‘s with more and more foreign art institutes, delegations and artists, dispatching students to study abroad and receiving foreign students to study in our institute, which result in promoting international art exchanges and development. These outstanding artists make huge contribution to the development of Fine Arts in China.

The traditional campus was located at the district of Jiulongpo, in Chongqing. The new campus was built in Huxi District, Chongqing in 2005.

The university's philosophy is "close to life, to serve the people; knowledge as equally important, new incentives; open-minded and keeping up with the times". The overall development objective is to provide the highest level of art education in the western region of China.
