139927 Chuang Che LR UF

Che was born in Beijing in 1934. His father worked at the National Palace Museum as a scholar and calligrapher, introducing the young Che to calligraphy, an art form that would later directly influence his paintings. As a young man, Che studied Fine Arts at National Taiwan Normal University, where he was taught about the Eastern painting traditions. However, Che felt that there was more that could be brought to these old ideals. So upon graduating in 1958, Che joined the Fifth Moon Group; a group of Chinese artists who sought to bring Modernism to the art world in Taiwan.

In 1966, Chuang Che received the J.D. Rockefeller III Fund travel grant and used it to move to the United States and continue his artistic studies. Moving first to Iowa and then New York, Che was exposed to the contemporary western painting styles of the time, most importantly Abstract Expressionism. This style would, like calligraphy, have a profound effect on the work Che produced.

Chuang Che fuses East and West, marrying the influences from his Chinese and Taiwanese heritage with European and American Abstract Expressionism. He remarks: “No art can mature by itself; it has to absorb nutrition from the rest of the world’s art. I’ve always had this ideal; to see a fusion of Chinese and western painting.”

His bold, decisive brushstrokes and explosive yet orchestrated compositions harmonize perfectly. His divine balance of expressive form and rich, vibrant palette, combined with his various textural depths, engage viewers’ attention and provide an endless visual journey into his spiritual paintings.

Findlay Galleries has represented Chuang Che since 2006. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally and can be found in many private and corporate collections.
