The Impressionism of Hua Jiankun
Hua Jinakun, one of the most respected impressionists in Northern China, was born in 1945 at Tailai County of Heilongjiang Province. He studied graduate and post graduate courses in the Department of Oil Painting at Luxun Academy of Fine Art in Shenyang in the 1970’s. He worked as Art Editor and Chief Art Editor at Bengang Daily since 1978.
Hua Jiankun is an artist with passion for life. In early 90’s, he resigned from his work and traveled through the mountain area of Manchu Autonomy County to revitalise his passion for life and art. Staying in the mountain area for 8 years, Hua had created many remarkable works. Traveling is another means to stimulate Hua’s creativity; he had traveled to Europe and North America alone to experience the romantic yet hard life of being a traveling artist.
Hua uses bold strokes and bright colour to record what he saw. Being an impressionist, some of his paintings are bold and abstract. Yet you can tell there are meanings behind the abstract forms, the fusion of the emotion of the artist and forms of the object conveys a special post impressionism touch to his paintings.
In 1979 and 1980, Hua received first prize in Reportorial Artwork Show at Liaoning Province and Northeast China respectively. In 1989, he was invited to exhibit at China Academy of Fine Art, and in 1990 and 1991 in Koyama and Tokyo respectively. 1992, he held an exhibition in Chinese Art Gallery in Beijing and the event was widely reported by local and overseas media. Other than Japan and big cities in China, he has exhibited in Russia, America and South East Asian. His works are collected by local and overseas art lovers.
