Quan Handong

Born  1956,  Guilin, Guangxi Province

1982  B.F.A. Chinese Painting Department, Guangxi Fine Art Academy

Lives in New York, where he is a motion picture animation designer

"Unlike most of my Guilin colleagues, who focus on the innate beauty of local landscapes, I have devoted the bulk of my work to the strength and power of mountain oxen.  In my work you will find justaposed traditional Chinese brush techniques side-by-side with perceptions from Western Expressionism.  I seek to imbue both with potent and unique character."
