Artist Bio
Artist:  Gu ZhiJun
Biography:  Gu showed a strong love for art at an early age. In 1979, he entered Suzhou Taohuawu Woodcut & New Year Pictures Agency, engaged in the research and creation of traditional printing and learning traditional printing skills from famous handicraftsman Ye JinSheng. During the past ten years, Gu has devoted himself to the research and exploration of traditional printing, trying to create something new in his own work. As a result, his works always display strong personality and distinctive style. In 1995, he was admitted into the advanced class for teaching assistants at the Print Dept. of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. During his studies, he explored various types of printing and many of his works were exhibited, delivered or awarded at many domestic and foreign grand exhibitions. Now he is a member of the Chinese Print Artists Association and the Chinese Artists Association, a painter at Jiangsu Print Institute and Deputy Secretary General of the Suzhou Art Association.
Statement:  Gu mixes ancient and modern meanings of life in one picture by the misplacement and overlapping of the concept of time. He uses lines and faces to manifest the interleaving and overlapping of images, attempting to achieve a span of time and space. Light and shade are found in his images, as well as early and late times co-existing. Just as the moon moves from fullness to crescent-shape, life has smoothness as well as hardship. And it is through this bitterness and joy that we feel the regrets of ancient people and the superiority of being of modern times.
