ABOUT HENRI CHEN KEZHAN (SINGAPORE)

Henri Chen KeZhan is an abstract artist who works with Chinese ink and colour on paper. Chen is inspired by the modern Chinese masters including Zhang Daqian, Shi Lu and Lu Shoukun. He is noted for his nature-inspired work in Chinese brush that he paints and reinterprets within the realm of abstract expressionism. Chen’s subtle yet complex style is contemporary, emotive and engaging. Chen studied art in Paris at the École des Beaux-Arts where he trained under expressionist oil painter Professor Jean Berthole in the 1980s. He also studied traditional painting (including the Lingnan style) and calligraphy with Fan Chang Tien, Chao Shaoan and Fung Kang-ho in Singapore and Hong Kong.
