Zhou Chunya

Ravenel Art Group

Born in 1955 in Chongqing, China, Zhou graduated from the Sichuan Academy of Fine Art in 1982. After obtaining his masters degree from the Kassel Academy of Fine Art in Germany in 1988, Zhou returned to China in 1989 and currently lives and works in Chengdu and Shanghai. Zhou’s series combine traditional elements of Chinese literati paintings with aesthetics from modern expressionist artistic movements found in the West and include themes such as “Stones,” “Flowers,” “Peach Blossoms,” and his iconic “Green Dog.” Zhou has also established the Five Colors Fund, a charitable foundation which provides aid, support, and scholarships for children disabled by the recent earthquakes in China. Zhou held his first retrospective at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2010, and was awarded Artist of the Year at the 2010 Art Power Awards.
