With great pleasure, I would like to introduce to you a true master of contemporary Chinese ink & brush artist Mr. Gong-Kai Pan 潘公凱.
Mr. Pan is invited by San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park to an exhibit of six of his new paintings created for the Museum, the most prominent work is over 45 feet long, created with ink on rice paper, exemplifies the combination of classical brush and ink techniques and format in a contemporary context.
Mr. Pan is an acclaimed artist in China, he was the president of the most prestigious art school in China 中央美術學院. He has educated and influenced many generations of young artists today.
Introduced by one of our life members Ping Hui Lee 李屏慧, we are very fortunate to ask Mr. Pan to give us a speech while he is here. His topic is 談談中國畫的筆墨. We are going to witness and learn how he 'd embraced the rapid economic growth of China yet kept a strong sense of Chinese tradition all expressed in his art works.
This event is a joint effort by SD Chinese Art & Cultural Society and San Diego Chinese Historic Museum.
Please don't miss this wonderful opportunity to meet a true master and do bring your questions for a lively discussion.
