Fan Shao Hua was born in 1963 in Guangzhou, China. He started Chinese ink painting at a tender age of 10 at the Secondary School of Fine Arts. Subsequently, he graduated from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts. Besides being the prestigious winner of the ‘Painting of the Year Award’ at the 19th UOB Painting of the Year Competition in 2000 and the International Premium Oil Painting Artist Award in Hong Kong in 2008, Fan has won numerous art awards and held many exhibitions overseas through the years, in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Paris. He is also a member of the Singapore Art Society, the Society of Chinese Artists and the Japan Modern Arts Association. He has been featured in a number of publications such as the Mondial Collections Art in Asia, the Straits Times Singapore, the American International Artist Magazines and Channel News Asia. As an artist, Fan is constantly experimenting and evolving. He fuses realism with his creative ideas and representational art in his artistic expressions. He generously exploits both the Chinese techniques of ‘ink splash’ and ‘creased paper background’, and the Western tradition of representational art techniques in many of his compositions. His artworks are where East meets West, and this style is constantly brought up by a level in his paintings as he applies it in various ways to different subjects. These can be seen most evidently in “The Landscape” and “The Abstract” series of paintings. Fan continues to push the boundary of blending Chinese and Western techniques in his art. He gets his inspiration from nature as he strongly believes in the harmonious interactions between man and the unadulterated environment. He devotes considerable time to visit the Chinese countryside and famous mountains like Taishan, Lushan and Huangshan in order to feel connected with nature and gain inspiration for his works. #sgart #art #fanshaohua #goshenartgallery
