Artist Biography

 

Shi Jianguo was born in 1964 in Tangshan, China. He graduated from the Hebei Light Industry School (faculty of ceramic art) in 1985; and received a degree from the China Central Academy of Fine Arts (faculty of Chinese painting) in 1991. Currently he is the director of the classic art editing room at the People’s Fine Arts Publishing House and a member of the Chinese Artist Association.

 

Shi is renowned for his unconventional ink art style, “music has a direct influence on Shi, he never does preliminary sketches, guided largely by the rhythmic and intuition, expressing freely on paper, sometimes torrential sometimes moderate.  Everything happened rapidly yet under his control.”
