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.

Gu Gan was born in Changsha, Hunan province, China, in 1942, and studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts.  In 1985, he organized the first exhibition of "Chinese Modern Calligraphy."

He was famous for "Father of the Chinese Modern Calligraphy," and is a modern calligraphic artist who blends Chinese calligraphy with Western Art.  The works created by Gu Gan are expressed by merging the abstract spirit and high spontaneity of traditional Chinese calligraphy in his artwork, with influence of 20th century Western masters.

He bridged the Chinese culture and the Western art.  Gu Gan was also invited to "Brushes with surprise: The art of Calligraphy in Modern China" in 2002.  Gu Gan's art is introduced with special articles on the website of the Museum.  The British Museum started a planned collection of Gu Gan's works years ago.  Undoubtedly his artistic performance has put him in the fine arts history of the world.
