compared to the extensive information about American artists.|
Duan Zheng-Qu was born in 1958 in a farm village in China. Duan is a
member of the Chinese Artists’ Association, graduated from Guangzhou Academy
of Fine Arts, majored in oil painting, and is currently the professor
of Capital Normal University, and guest professor of China Central
Academy of Fine Arts.
In his painting, Duan portrays farm houses, farmers and
what’s described in the folk songs. He uses black as the main outline and
red to represent the heaviness, hardship and warmness of lives around
loss. He is fond of portraying farmers particularly in this area since
they are not affected by the commercial culture, and can still sing
loudly, easily and freely.
The artist portrays this very unique
cultural scene in China with his own life experiences, and communicates
with humanities by his works.
His works had won several domestic and
international prizes; some of the works are collected by National Art
Museum of China, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Japan, and University
Museum and Art Gallery in Hong Kong.
