1. Feng Chiang-jiang was born in the city of Xian in 1943. Interested in painting since his
youth, he taught himself the art. After initially practicing Western painting and Chinese
ink-and-wash painting, he specialized in the traditional meticulous brushwork painting
with help and inspiration from the famous art historian and painter Pan Xie-zi. Pan Xie-zi
also passed on his knowledge of ancient frescoes replication to Feng, which Feng was able
to apply to various temples, tombs and sites such as Yung li Palace and Qing-long Temple.
The experience has benefited his artistic development and style maturation.
Feng's works integrated the rhythm of the traditional lineal approach and the Western
spectacular colour approach. After his successful debut, "Dance of Red Silk" Feng produced
numerous modern meticulous brushwork and heavy colour paintings that earned him
critical acclaim in China. With his talent and effort, he was awarded numerous times and
was recognized as an "Eminent artist" In 1997, Feng relocated to New York to further
develop his artistic career. His exhibitions in the U.S. were successful and aroused the
interest of many foreign viewers and collectors. A number of his works have been selected
to form "Works of Feng Chiang-jiang" "Selected Works of Feng Chiang-jiang" "Selected
Heavy Colour Paintings of Feng Chang-jiang" and "Works of Art of Feng Chang-jiang" His
works have been exhibited throughout the world and are treasured by many museums and
collectors as works of art.
