Mr. Chien-Chung Li born in Yantai, Shandong, China in 1923, held the post in the army as an art designer and drafter in his early carrier, and then he followed the government to Taiwan and retired in 1951. In 1966, Mr. Li presided at the Modern Painting Associations, and was invited to join the exhibitions in Saint Paul, Brazil in 1969 and 1971 respectively. Till now Mr. Li has still been diligently in art creation since he immigrated to the US in 1978. Because Mr. Li is engaged in industrial fine art design for long time, he is good at using such media as oil painting, color ink, engraving, acrylic, calligraphy, and multiple media etc. freely.
Mr. Li had tried to apply his industrial design and printing & dying on painting. His many unique techniques include: punching, paintings with cracks on concave and convex, broken-color, impression printing of sands and stone, spray, fluorescent painting, and special batik etc. producing 3-D feeling and special quality. Because Mr. Li uses simple geological line to construct picture, so that the practical materials and simple line construct a kind of abstract thinking space allowing viewers to produce associate thinking or resonance. Mr. Li’s work sometimes expresses the feeling of boundless vigor and vast space. Under the gradual influence of eastern and western cultures, Mr. Li considers both traditional and modern features and mix ancient and modern techniques to become a unique master.
For this exhibition, Mr. Li is kind to promise the invitation of this Center and provide his elaborate works near 40 years to viewers, and will hold the art education lecture during the term of exhibition. Mr. Li will generously open his whole-life creation technique and painting idea in order to deepen the teaching contents of school’s art education and achieve the purpose of promoting art education.
