Shan Gang

Chinese, born 1958

Shan Gang creates paintings equally inspired by traditional Chinese ink painting and European and American modernism. His outlined figures, whose features are often rendered in a two-dimensional manner, have their roots in ink painting, while his dense application of colorful brushwork suggests Western abstraction. Immersed in the Chinese painting tradition before going to live and study in Holland, Shan favors subject matter that is sociopolitical in tone—from a woman in a Maoist-style cap and tunic to a silenced family wearing smog masks in a work titled Speechless.
