Galloping Rhythm

  • Catalogue text

    For many years, Hong Tao worked as a clerical officer in Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Manufactory, only beginning to make prints during the 1970s. He followed a printmaking course at the Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts in 1987. Hong Tao is well known for the industrial subject matter of his woodcut prints, which relate to the environment with which he is most familiar, although he currently works as an ‘official’ artist in the Zhuzhou Artists’ Association in Hunan. Hong’s prints since the 1990s reflect the speed, turbulence, chaos and noisy scenery of the modern, ever-changing China, with contrasting colour and semi-abstract forms.
