Hu Chi-Chung (1927-2012)

Hu Chi-Chung

Born in a village of the province of Zhejiang, Hu Chi Chung left mainland China in 1950 to settle in Taiwan where he began to paint. As early as 1954, during his first trip to the United States, he discovered impressionist and abstract art. Upon his return to Taiwan, an exhibition of his work was organized in Kaohsiung. In 1959, he exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris and participated in the Sao Paulo Biennial on numerous occasions. Hu Chi Chung joined the "Fifth Moon group” in 1961 and immigrated to the United States with his family in 1971. He used various techniques, incorporating sand into his oil paintings. Although very modern, his oneiric art is on the verge of abstraction and evokes traditional Chinese painting in certain aspects.
