100 years old Master Painter Hou Beiren will have a solo exhibition at NanHai Art (Millbrae,CA). Hou is renowned for his contemporary interpretation of the ‘splash ink and color’ school of painting, which seamlessly integrates both Eastern and Western aesthetics. Hou is regarded as one of China’s most important contemporary artists to transform Chinese painting. NanHai Art will celebrate the opening of this exhibition on Saturday, February 20th with a reception from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., at their Millbrae gallery (510 Broadway).

Hou Beiren at 100 will feature 14 new paintings created between 2014 and 2015 that continues his exploration of the ‘splash ink and color’ school of painting—a style developed in collaboration with legendary painting master, Chang Dai-chien in the 1960s. This school of painting incorporates Modernist and Abstract elements with traditional brushwork of classical Chinese painting. In these new works, Hou demonstrates his command of both Chinese and Western traditions, combining bold colors and rhythmic brushwork with abstracted imagery. His painting reduced images into their most elemental components

The show will be curated by Mark Dean Johnson, a Professor of Art and Gallery Director at San Francisco State University and was the Principal Editor of 'Asian American Art: A History, 1850-1970' (2008: Stanford University Press), and curator of many exhibitions.
