Painter of Tibetan landscapes, figures and portraits; photographer and calligrapher.
Han Yuchen has loved calligraphy and painting from an early age, thanks to the guidance and influence of his family. In the 1970s he started painting with Li Hua, Su Gaoli and Liang Yulong of the Central Academy of Fine Arts and with the prominent artist Zhang Wenxin. Many of his paintings, calligraphies and photographs have been selected for exhibitions across China and over the last ten years all over the world. In recent years, his oil paintings inspired by Tibet have been widely acclaimed in artistic circles because of their authentic and vivid representation of Tibetan life.
His paintings ‘The Old Sisters’ and ‘By the Niyang Riverside’ beat previous records at the 2012 China Rongbaozhai Spring auction and at the 2012 China Hanhai Autumn auction.
Han Yuchen is currently an honorary member of the Oil Painting Art Committee of the Chinese Artists’ Association, a member of the China Calligraphers’ Association, Vice-President of the Hebei Calligraphers’ Association and a member of the China Photographer’s Association.
