Chuan Cheng Art Center
Chuan Cheng Art Center was established in 1990. For more than 20 years, it has adhered to the line of professional brokerage and is committed to promoting the modern ink creation of Chinese middle and young people as its consistent business philosophy and direction. It is unique among many galleries. The term "New Zhejiang School" refers to the creation of a group of teachers and students who graduated from Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now renamed the China Academy of Art) when the gallery was founded. They thrive on the solid foundation of the old Zhejiang school painters and seek art. Essentially for deeper creative exploration. They are no longer willing to follow in the footsteps of their predecessors and walk the road that never belongs to them. They have the courage to break through the old framework and drive the trend of taking Western learning as their own use. They no longer only seek for a hasty established style and model, and strive to transform the traditional nutrients into creative transformations. Their respective creations are unique. It has a unique style, distinctive artistic vocabulary and symbols, and each has a deep ambition. It is the responsibility of holding the banner to paint a new realm of ink painting belonging to this era. Representative painters of the "New Zhejiang School" include Zhuo Hejun, Han Likun, Chen Xiangxun, Gu Yingqing, Zhu Hong, Zheng Li, Zhang Quan, Ma Xiaojuan, etc. Their exhibitions have covered Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Germany, the United States, Canada, Greece, Italy and other countries. They have also participated in the previous [Taipei International Art Fair], [Hong Kong Asian Art Fair], [Korea Seoul International Art Fair], [China International Gallery Fair] and [Singapore International Art Fair]. His works have been collected by the National Art Museum of China, Shanghai Art Museum, British Museum, American Asia-Pacific Museum, and South Korea Asian Art Museum.
At present, Zhuo Hejun, Han Likun, and Chen Xiangxun among the "New Zhejiang School" painters are professors and doctoral supervisors at the China Academy of Art. Chen Xiangxun, under the tutelage of Mr. Lu Yanshao. The work "March of Pastoral Songs" won the Silver Award of the "Sixth National Art Exhibition" in 1984. In 1989, his experimental work "Moon in the Forest" won the highest honor of the "New Artist Award" of the "Contemporary Chinese Ink Artist Award". His work "Door God Group Painting" participated in the 1993 [Art Critics Annual Nomination Exhibition] and was rated as the artist with the most outstanding achievements in exploring modern style ink painting in the new era. He is currently the head of the Chinese Painting Department of China Academy of Art. His works have been auctioned at auction companies such as Hong Kong Swire Christie's, China Guardian, Shenzhen, and Taipei Heirloom. Twelve years after Zhu Hong went abroad, he returned to his alma mater, the China Academy of Art, to study in the doctoral program. He chose to re-understand tradition in the new contemporary cultural context, and construct his own vocabulary and enjoyment. In recent years, he has shined in international art fairs in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and other places and has become the focus of attention on the venue. Zheng Li is a young and promising painter of the "New Zhejiang School". He participated in the "Ninth National Art Exhibition" in 1999 and won the "Gold Medal" in the ink painting category with "Science of Scholars". He has since become famous. In recent years, he has also shown his prominence in a series of important exhibitions such as the [One Hundred Years of Chinese Painting Exhibition], [2002 Shanghai Biennale], and [Beijing First Biennale]. He is a rising star among today's ink painters. The characters of Gu Yingqing's "Ancient Series" and "Modern Girl Series" are also unique in today's ink painting circles, and their subsequent explosive power is just around the corner. Zhang Quan's "Flower Fragrance in the Screen", whether in terms of modeling, conception or painting language, is also unique in the Chinese ink painting world.
At the same time, the angle that the Heritage Art Center adheres to when collecting the works of older Chinese artists is that there is no room for delay, otherwise it will be completely destroyed. Therefore, it carefully and a large number of works of two artists, Li Tiefu and Hu Shanyu. In particular, Li Tiefu was the first artist in the history of Chinese art to study painting in the West. Standing in the history of Chinese oil painting, its importance is beyond doubt. He has a more profound understanding of Western oil paintings, especially realist oil paintings, than the first generation painters such as Liu Haisu, Yan Wenliang, Lin Fengmian and Xu Beihong... "Just wait for Chunlei's shocked dream to return, with a long roar that will calm the world." This is the magnificent poem made by Mr. Tiefu during his lifetime. I think this will be the precursor of his artistic work reappearing in front of the world and leading the coquettish again. We would like to devote more time and energy to the inheritance of Li Tiefu's artistic spirit.
The above is our dual management strategy and goal of promoting young modern art on the one hand and keeping the artistic assets of the older generation on the other hand. I hope to make a meager effort to introduce and promote modern outstanding artists and the increasingly rare old art. This year, we invited Zhang Jian and Gao Qian to join the team of the Chuan Cheng Art Center. Their minimalist style, modern composition, and very fresh personal artistic vocabulary are the future stars of the Chinese ink painting circle. They are worthy of observation and exploration. Here we are willing to build a platform for art collectors with a sincere heart, through which we can more easily and appropriately enter this beautiful art world.
