    Chen Long graduated from the Jiamusi College of Education in Heilongjiang province and studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1993 and 2000. Since 2001, he has worked as a printmaker in the studio of the Heilongjiang Artists Association. His early work shows a decorative style with vibrant colours. Since the late 1990s, his woodcuts have changed dramatically into a meticulous technical process with symbolic subject matter based on his experiences in his homeland. He has changed not only the appearance and concept of the woodcut in the Great Northern Wilderness School, but has also challenged the limit of woodcut as an art form.
