//…Zhu Daoping…//
朱道平 (b.1949, China).
Born in Huangyan, Zhejiang, Zhu Daoping graduated from the Fine Arts Department of Nanjing Art Academy. Zhu’s paintings were exhibited in the annual national art exhibition even before his graduation. Since 1998, he has been president of the Nanjing Institute of Calligraphy and Painting. In 2004, he received the first prestigious Huang Binhong Award, named for the leading literati painter of the early 20th century. Having grown up near Nanjing, Zhu’s art us closely related to the New Jinling (Nanjing) School, painters deeply influenced by Fu Baoshi (1904-1965), who revivified the local landscape tradition; and the lush terrain of southern China and the Yangzi River, While the application of dotted surfaces in Zhu Daoping’s paintings is reminiscent of the style of earlier Nanjing masters such as Mei Qing (1623-1697) and Shitao (1642-c.1707), Zhu goes further by rediscovering and emphasizing the relationship between dots, lines, and the pictorial surface: he has created a modern aesthetic that is still rooted in the long Chinese tradition.
