This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Heiyang (given name Zhao Runfan) was born in Chongqing in 1966 (it was then part of Sichuan).  In 1983 he set up the China Association for Anonymous Painting, determined to open a new path which would break the traditional and monolithic mode of Chinese painting which was at that time heavily influenced by the socialist realist tradition.

In 1985 he was the moving force behind the holding of the first national exhibition of paintings by the members of the Association for Anonymous Painting.  Even before the “new tide of art” reached its peak, he was one of the pioneers of Chinese modernism; Heiyang was then only 19 years old.

There is an element of truth found in his art. Although he stands outside the contemporary wave of modern Chinese art, his attitude is not one of consciously adopted ‘independence’ or ‘aloofness.’

Just as events in his life are vital influences on his work with oil and canvas, his reserved manner is merely the means by which he preserves the time and peace of mind required for the making of art.
