Today I would like to write about the biography of famous painter named Lin Feng Mian.
Lin Feng Mian was born in Guangdong, China in 1900 and died in 1991. In his early twenties he spent most of his time in France where he studied art but he later returned to China to be a principal and a teacher at the Beiping Institute of Arts. Lin Feng Mian blended both his Chinese ink and Western oil successfully and seamlessly integrating it into Western and Chinese style. He was know as the pioneer of modern Chinese art and held several solo exhibitions in Berlin. At the age of 28 he founded the National Academy of Art in China but because of his controversial works during Sino-Japanese War and Cultural Revolution in the1960s, he had to destroy most of his own artworks and ended up being imprisoned for four years. He then migrated to Hong Kong and spent the rest of his life there. And here's a few paintings by him for you to enjoy.
