Born in Nanjing of Jiangsu Province in 1949, Jiang Dahai has developed his artistic style by drawing on the essence of both Chinese and French art. His lively toned ink paintings and oil paintings are all characterized by light shades in which we can find the artist’s love for such Italian masters as Masaccio, Piero della Francesca and Morandi, whom he often mentions. In his works, too, we can sense the unique Chinese perception and experience of Nature. Thus, even in the least figurative of his works, in the most abstract and time-transcending of his oil paintings, which are almost qualified as “occidental”, and out of space, one can find a breath that is properly Chinese.
