Gu, Zhijun (1961 - Present)

Juxtaposing the traditional with the contemporary, Gu Zhijun creates inventive prints that link the past to the present. Born in Suzhou in 1961, his passion for art developed as a child. By 1979, he joined the Taohuawu Woodblock Print Making Society, where he studied traditional printmaking techniques under the famous artist Ye Jin. Over twenty years of traditional study and creative exploration, Gu Zhijun developed his highly personalized and distinctive style. Greatly respected as a founder of the new wave of Chinese creative prints, he has been selected for major exhibitions, publications and awards, both within China and abroad.


Gu Zhijun is a member of the China Artists Association and the China Printmakers' Association. He serves as director of the Jiangsu Province Artists Association, vice secretary-general of the Suzhou Artists Association, and is ranked as a “First Class Artist” by the Chinese government

Contemporary Japanese and East Asian Art

Ronin Gallery’s Contemporary art collection challenges the boundaries of tradition and innovation through the work of Japan's greatest contemporary artists and tomorrow’s most promising talents. Featured in museum exhibitions worldwide, contemporary Japanese and East Asian artists are pushing limits and exploring fresh techniques across mediums and styles. For many of the contemporary artists in this collection, inspiration sparks from an interweaving of old with new. Many combine traditional themes, tools, or materials with technology, contemporary themes, or innovative techniques. This hybrid expression is distinctly contemporary and unremittingly vital. From the Pop art legacy of the Shinohara’s to the foremost master of Japanese tattooing, Horiyoshi III, this collection of contemporary Japanese and East Asian art spans a wide range of media, including woodblock prints, screen prints, photography, etchings, paintings, sculpture, calligraphy, ceramics, and mixed media artworks.
