Mr. Zhou Bin was originally active in traditional Chinese painting. But when he saw a woodblock print by famous artist Luo Guirong, he decided to become a printmaker himself. That was in 2000 when he was 43 years old. Since then Zhou Bin has worked hard and has made a fast career.
We at artelino have so far received only one print by Zhou Bin - a woodblock print titled "Warm Wind". The very same print was shown at the 18th National Printmaking Exhibition in Shanghai from September 27 until October 6, 2007. This exhibition takes place every one to two years in different provinces of China and is the most prestigious exhibition for Chinese printmakers.
Mr. Zhou Bin was born in 1957 in Yinchuan city of Ningxia Autonomous region. He learned fine art at the Fine Art Department of Ningxia University.
Zhou Bin began his printmaking creations rather late - in 2000. Until then, he was a professional artist in Chinese traditional painting. But when he saw Mr. Luo Guirong's prints, he was so fascinated that he decided to learn printmaking from this great master. With his efforts and Mr. Luo Guirong's help, he became an important person in Chinese printmaking circles. Soon he won several provincial and national prizes.
Articles about the artist and his works were published in such magazines like "Art" and "Chinese Printmaking".
The following statements are from newspapers and magazines. We do not know the authors of these statements.
"Mr. Zhou Bin absorbs his teacher Mr. Luo Guirong's technique of rigorous mosaic composition, and adds his own way, to twist together with lines and points, he is also very good at using the lights, shadow, luminous spots, all full of vigor."
"Mr. Zhou Bin tells, the art must be based on his own region, own nation, in this way, his artworks can have their life and art values, and can be appreciated by the whole world."
