Zhiwei Tu


Biography:
Zhiwei Tu. The experiences of childhood often exert an important influence throughout an artist's life time. Zhiwei Tu was born in a poverty-stricken mountain village in Wengyuan county, Guangdong province, China. His painting, Lunch (1984), depicting a peasant couple who were taking a lunch break by the field, probably embodies some impressions from his childhood. Among people living in remote districts (in contrast to city-dwellers), there still remains many of the old tales and legends. This is perhaps one of the reasons why Zhiwei Tu in his later career has been interested in historical events. But it is more important to note that he has been, in his art, seeking the expression of the honesty, naivety and primitive vitality inherent in the people living in these remote districts, which can be seen in whatever he depicts – in his historical paintings, and portraitures of the Tibetans, the oriental and the occidental, even in rendering of nudes. Tu received his BA and MA degrees from the Guangzhou Institute of Fine arts, and served for seven years as an art assistant professor at the same institute. Some senior professors in the institute had gone to various countries to make study of 19th and 20th century western art including Realism and French Impressionism. By learning from them, Tu laid a solid foundation in his basic skills and the use of colors. In 1987 Tu came to the U.S. to make further study of oil painting and was granted a second degree of MFA at Drake University in 1990. There he was greatly encouraged and inspired by his advisor Prof. Jules Kirschenbaum. In the process of studying contemporary American art, Tu has gradually formed his own style. His work has been exhibited many times and has won several awards including three golds and one silver medal. Collected in this album are mainly figure paintings by Tu. Most of them have been done in the last ten years [1986-1996- ed.]. Some were conceived more than fifteen years ago, however.

Artista Grant Avakyan


Biography:
Grant Avakyan was born in 1956 in Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia. Growing up in a country with centuries of rich history and abundant in art, he became infatuated with the arts at a very young age. From manuscripts to the carefully constructed churches and folk music, his childhood in Armenia laid the foundation and became a source of inspiration in becoming an artist. As art history was a part of his life, he learned to appreciate the importance of the past, the lessons it had to teach, and the beauty that it created. After high school in 1971 Grant was accepted to Terlemezyan College of Fine Arts in Yerevan, Armenia. In 1975 he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Art. He then attended Yerevan Institute of Art and Theater where he received his Masters Degree in 1981. For his unmatched accomplishment in art, he also received the Award of Excellence and Achievement. Unfortunately, living through the Communist regime when government controlled all art and music, it was hard for an artist to achieve total freedom of expression. But Grant’s strong ambition was not bound by these limits. His motivation drove him to find methods outside of these barriers to help him teach and advance himself into becoming an inspiring artist. Today Grant lives and creates art in Valencia, California. But his artistic talent, professionalism and unique style have captivated many art collectors and galleries in different parts of Europe and Armenia as well.
