After the fall of China’s last imperial dynasty, Chao Shao-an sought to revitalize Chinese art and refresh the artistic connections with nature. Drawing inspiration from the West, he became a leader in his homeland’s Modernist art movement while continuing to honor his ancient Chinese heritage. With fluid brushwork, vibrant colors, inventive compositions, and loose, expressive style, Chao Shao-an creates exquisite flower, bird, animal, and insect paintings that are grounded in the symbolism of his culture. Twelve of these masterful paintings are featured in this calendar for your enjoyment all year round.
