Contemporary Ink Painting, Zen Art
Zhou Zhouzhou, China’s renowned contemporary artist was born in Hebei Province and graduated from China Central Academy of Arts and Design. During his years of work in Beijing, Zhou focused on the academic study of the contemporary Chinese ink and wash painting and became one of the leading figures in this field because of his bold attempts to innovate traditional painting techniques and his creative efforts to combine Chinese painting theories with western art theories. With his works collected by many arts organisations both at home and abroad, Zhou is one of the most sought-after artists in China. In 2014, his work “China’s Lover” was selected and exhibited at that year’s National Fine Arts Exhibition.
The beauty in artistic conception lies at the core of beauty in form. Characterised by an elegant painting style and novel painting composition, Zhou’s works emanate a sense of simplicity and freedom. Vivid and well-arranged, Zhou’s works speak eloquently to his artistic attainment and present the beauty of natural scenery to the full. Enjoying his works, you will feel at ease physically and mentally, totally immersed in calm and tranquility. You will also feel your spirit purified once you begin to appreciate the Buddhist sense in the paintings.
