Zhou Chunya

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

With works that could be described as a crossover between Social Realism and Western Modernism, Zhou Chunya is a unique artist, renowned for his nature-centric works, including his most notable Green Dog series. Initially, Chunya was trained to create works that would serve as propaganda during the Cultural Revolution; he also travelled to Tibet around this time and compiled a series of paintings depicting the lives of Nomads within the area.
 
« The greatest truth lies in simplicity. »
Zhou Chunya
He eventually went on to embrace the outputs of Western art, notably German expressionism – this can be seen in the aforementioned Green Dog series, a collection of paintings depicting his own German Shepherd Dog;
 
« Color itself has no meaning, and it is meaningful only when people think of it.  Then it becomes a symbol. »
Zhou Chunya

the work is known to be borne from a deep love for his pet, and also an expression of Chunya himself – a self-portrait of kinds. Later in his career, Chunya returned to his roots by combining the traditional images of Chinese peach blossoms alongside embracing figures of opposing sexes – a nod to the newly-liberal take on sexuality.

Gestural is a term which describes painting with freely sweeping brush strokes. The main goal of gestural art was to allow the artist to physically portray emotional impulses. Viewers were thought to understand inner artistic thoughts revealed through the varied, yet expressive paint marks.
