As a young student at the National Academy of Art in East China’s Zhejiang Province, Chen Peiqiu was fascinated by the ancient masters of traditional Chinese painting. She copied their works – a  foundational practice to learn the medium – attempting to match the masters’ use of the Chinese brush and  the ways in which they infused their  compositions with energy and spirit. As she developed as an artist, Chen mixed traditional brushstrokes with her own free-hand style and daring use of colour. Thanks to the distinctive idiom she created, the artist has been able to capture her subject matter–most often birds, flowers and landscapes – with vivid elegance. Still working today as one of China’s most famous female artists, Chen continues to be an ambassador for traditional Chinese painting in our time.
