Your Position: Guan Zeju --Artist Works Of Individual Album
Artist Biography

Guan Zeju (1941) hails from Yangjiang, Guangdong Province. Guan Zeju was a childhood prodigy. He graduated from the Oil Painting Department of the Guangzhou Arts Academy, and continued his studies there in 1978. Guan Zeju, born in Canton in 1941, was a childhood prodigy. He was a successful socialist-realist painting images of the workers and portraits of Mao. Guan made his way to America and became a celebrated painter of the ballet, which culminated in the release of the book GUAN ZEJU, Selected Ballet Paintings, in 2000.

San Francisco, California: Suggesting a harmonious marriage of China's artistic and cultural past with imagery and attitudes of the present, Guan Zeju will attend his one-artist exhibition of recent paintings from his museum exhibition in China, at Weinstein Gallery, 383 Geary Street in San Francisco. "Guan Zeju has captured the emotional and intellectual climate of our times. We should pay strict attention," says gallery owner, Rowland Weinstein.For the last few years Guan challenged himself to work in secret, fusing contemporary nudes, unashamed as they pose before the images of a China that has passed. Realizing the importance of this new imagery, Guan, already known for his technical brilliance, pushed his painting to a peerless level. According to Weinstein, "The nudes are a marvel of modern realism; the period paintings in the background mirror the technique of their time." Also excited by this new direction in painting, the curator of the Guandong Museum of Art immediately arranged Guan Zeju's first museum show in over 10 years in China after seeing the new imagery.
