Boy on buffalo

Dong Kejun is a self-taught wood-engraver and painter, who spent many years in Guizhou, where he became Chairman of the Chinese Art Association in the province. His early work of the 1960s and 1970s is typical of the Socialist romantic realism of that period. He later settled in Chongqing, where he developed a powerful style entirely his own.

Based on extract from Sullivan, Michael, Modern Chinese Art: The Khoan and Michael Sullivan Collection (Oxford: Ashmolean Museum, 2009)
