Huang Gang fuses traditional civilization and modern culture through distinctive painting techniques, displaying profound quality of Oriental aesthetics. Gang aims to use symbols to express culture, social norms, and history as a reminder of what China used to be and how it has transformed into modern day China. Instead of plane visual hierarchy, Huang Gang's paintings contain intrinsic logicality through massive stacking techniques. His creative process consists of deconstructing and then re-constructing the original elements, such as traditional Tibetan woodblocks, Sutra manuscripts, Tibetan trunks made of yak fur, and traditional Chinese lacquer, which conveys a rich cultural quality and emits great spiritual power.

  • +Artist Bio

    Born in Beijing in 1961, Huang Gang studied at the China Central Academy of Art and Design, graduating with a B.A. in Fine Art, followed by an M.A. in Environmental Art in 1991. Huang Gang was surrounded by traditional Chinese art and calligraphy since he was a child and, in the 1980s, developed an interest in traditional Tibetan culture which inspired him to incorporate Tibetan methods and motifs in his work. Huang Gang’s preoccupation with traditional Chinese and Tibetan culture comes as a response to the rapid socio-economic transformation in China throughout the 1990s. Recognized internationally, Huang Gang won the Ikuo Hirayama award in 1991 and the Silver Award at the 1st Beijing International Environmental Art Exhibition in 1995.  Read More
