Alisan Fine Arts is proud to showcase a solo exhibition of Chao Chung-hsiang, one of the most important Contemporary Chinese artists in the 20th century.
This exhibition will feature around 20 works painted from 1970s to 1980s in New York, half that have never been exhibited before. This will be the first solo exhibition we have held for Chao since 2004. Like Zao Wou-ki and Chu Teh-chun, Chao studied under the great master Lin Fengmian at the Hangzhou National College of Art.
He belongs to the first generation of Chinese diaspora who left the mainland in the 1950s and settled in the United States to further develop their artistic careers. Blending the Yin and Yang Taoist philosophy with Abstract Expressionism, Chao’s playful birds and fish combined with bold and sometimes fluorescent ink splashes are iconic of his art.
