Chinese Gongbi Paintings by Zou Chuan An

My Art post of today is about Zou's Gongbi Paintings which are highly appreciated by many people in the world.

Gongbi Paintings, literally "detailed strokes", are paintings characterized by fine brushwork. Gongbi is a technique in Chinese painting.

Zou Chuan An is a well known Chinese painter and his works are marked by virtuosity and elegance with powerful vitality. He has captured the charm of expressionistic brushwork and meticulous details. 

He is the prominent representative of the Gong-bi style in flower-and-bird.

Bird-and-flower painting is a kind of Chinese painting named after its subject matter. Normally, most bird-and-flower paintings belong to the scholar-artist style of Chinese painting. According to Chinese tradition, bird-and-flower painting covers flowers, birds, fish, and insects. 

It can thus deal with a wide range of natural topics, including flowers (plants), fish, insects, birds, pets (dogs, cats) etc. My kind of topics!
