Bio

1958  Year of birth

Now SACCShanghai Arts and Crafts College Professor

Lives and works in Shanghai

Jiang Zhenggen’s works have an artistic conception of “emptiness and tranquility”, which is a spiritual conception of the inner dimension of Chinese traditional culture.

When JIANG Zhenggen created his works, his brushwork often imitated the brushstrokes of Song and Yuan painters. Whether you stipple or stop the brush, sometimes it is rapid and smooth, sometimes quiet and sometimes rhythmic. The balanced control, penetration, super-slow stippling, and patient layering of the brush on the canvas, coincide with the spirit of Chinese classical painting and calligraphy. Jiang Zhenggen has been creating the series “Dot Dash” since 2013. “Dot Dash” was proposed by art critic and curator Ping Jie, who completed an art review article on ” Dot Dash and Cultivation Practices” in New York. Artist advocates spirit, experience, process, and self-enlightenment. He uses the way of

sequence and plural to explore the sound of the void and the purity of spirituality, opening up a new field of abstract art with an abstract language that is completely different from the West.

The artist has held solo and group exhibitions in many art institutions such as Chun Art Museum, Art Bund Puxi Museum, Himalayan Art Museum, Shanghai Jiushi Art Museum, National Art Museum of China, China Art Museum, Today Art Museum, Shanghai Mingyuan Art Museum, Sweden Redback Museum, and St. Petersburg Art Museum, etc. In 2015, he participated in the summerresidency project of Asian artists in Laforet, Italy. The works are collected by Swiss, Danish,Italian, and domestic collectors.
