Biography from Kingsley Art Auction:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Shi taught at the Beijing Arts Crafts College from 1968 to 1969.  In 1977, Shi was employed as art director at the People's Fine Art Publishing House in Beijing.  He made an extensive tour to Africa in 1978, and was inspired by the brilliant colors of the exotic cultures and wildlife.  The influence of African art can be prominently observed in Shi’s aesthetic expressions, and also led to the creation of the artist’s famous “African Sketches.”  He is skilled in painting figures and animals with strong and unique configurations.  He uses boneless technique to create strong contrast of bright color tones and his brushstrokes are also bold and strong.
From 1989 onwards, Shi has held exhibitions in the United States of America, Canada and Singapore, and was appointed as Director of the International Chinese Artists Association in Macau in 1996.  In 2004, a solo exhibition of Shi Hu was held at the National Arts Museum which later was held in other Asian countries.
