About the artist

Juxtaposing the traditional with the contemporary, Gu Zhijun (顾志军) 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.
