Chinese printmaking is older than Japanese printmaking. Unfortunately China was absent in the international art scene for decades and Westerners know nothing or little about modern Chinese printmaking. This is beginning to change rapidly. Modern Chinese printmakers are now jumping into the art scene like a bat out of hell. Hao Boyi is one of them - a first class representative of a classical and elegant style.

In May 2003, we at artelino received our first modern Chinese prints. We were amazed and are beginning to learn about contemporary Chinese printmaking and artists. Hao Ping, born 1952, is one of them - an established artist, whose works were shown in a great number of exhibitions inside and outside of China. His art works are in posession of Chinese, Korean, British and US museums.
