  • Chinese Prints 1950-2006 in the Ashmolean Museum by Weimin He and Shelagh Vainker

    Chinese Prints 1950-2006 in the Ashmolean Museum

    What I have been pursuing is the impression produced between hard fruitwood and soft wuan paper-this exquisite printing impression fascintates continually.

    In 1998, Wang Chao graduated from the Printmaking Department of the China National Academy of Fine Arts in Hangzhou and has remained there to carry out research on traditional Chinese woodcut printmaking. Wang Chao is one of the few professional artists still to practise the ancient woodblock method of water-soluble colour woodblock printing that flourished during the Ming period. He made his name from creating works in thread-bound book format with water soluble colour block-printing from pear wood blocks. Often combined with the blind-embossing technique, he creatively uses traditional assembled block woodcut techniques, mingled with contemporary perception, and his work has achieved international recognition.
