Splendid Watercolor and Serigraphy Works

Jiang Tie Feng was born in Zhejiang Province in China and he discovered his love for visual arts through painting and drawing while he was still a child. Consequently, he studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. In the turbulent 60s and 70s in China, Jiang Tie Feng was asked to create propaganda posters for Mao’s Cultural Revolution. However, at night, the artist was secretly creating his very own artistic style, based on Chinese mythology and Buddhism. My paintings are not only pictures; they are also music and poetry that is bewitching, sweet dreams that are being dreamed, says Tie Feng about his work. The artist is considered one of the best examples of contemporary Chinese art and he is a truly creative painter, who often creates stained glass windows and focuses on the subject of women, horses, birds, and nature as his main sources of inspiration. He created mainly in watercolor and serigraphy and it is known that his masterpiece serigraph edition as well as canvas-based works have been popular worldwide ever since the early 1980s. The artist was also a member of the Chinese Woodblock Association as well as a professor at the Yunnan Art Institute.

Moving to the United States

One of Tie Feng’s greatest successes has happened in 1979 when he was commissioned by the government to create a large mural representing Yunnan Province. This artwork was later installed in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. A couple of years later, Tie Feng was awarded the second place in an international competition and in 1983 he decided to come to the United States as a part of a student exchange program at the University of Southern California. In 1984, the painter has permanently moved to the United States, where his works have been sold for a high price and showcased in numerous exhibitions including the eminent ones held at the Portland Museum and at the New England Centre of Contemporary Art.

Jiang Tie Feng lives and works between China and the United States.
