Thanks to the overwhelming response from the press and public, the French Gallery FEAST Project is extending its exhibition of Zao Wou-Ki’s watercolour paintings until 7th February 2013.
He was a privileged child in 1920s China, the son of an indulgent banker and the grandson of a scholar who taught him calligraphy for two hours every day. In 1935, at the age of 15, he was enrolled at the School of Fine Arts in HangZhou. In 1948 he left China for Paris to study modern painting, Zao is part of the second generation of Chinese modern artists who went to Paris.
Zao Wou-Ki is one of the most successful and respected Chinese painter alive. FEAST Projects with the -exhibition Zao Wou-Ki – Beyond has the distinct privilege to be the first gallery exhibiting a group of these works painted between 2004 and 2009.
“Picasso taught me to draw like Picasso. Yet, the work of Cézanne taught me how to look at nature in Chinese paintings. I greatly admired Monet, Renoir, Modigliani and Matisse. But, Cézanne helped me to rediscover Chinese painting.”
