LIAN LIANG (B. 1958)
2013 Broadway International Art Center, Shanghai, China (group)
Born in Wuxian, Jiangsu in 1958, Lian Liang studied classical Chinese painting under Li Tianma and has been known as a connoisseur and collector of the genre. A practicing calligrapher, he later became a student of Chen Peiqiu and currently serves as an artist in residence at the Shanghai Academy of Painting and Calligraphy. The classical appeal of Lian's still-life originates from his lightly coloured bamboo branches, delicately delineated rocks and meticulously rendered birds. Inspired by the fine brush tradition of the bird-and-flower painting, his scholarly works are lyrical and poetic with a contemporary look.
