Guo Xianzhong’s animal paintings have overturned the Chinese painting’s convention technically and created qualitative changes in its intension and endless expansions in its extension. He injects calligraphy elements into his paintings, combining the two seamlessly and achieving the highest simplification without borrowing any western techniques. He personifies the animals under his brush, expressing human psyche through animal bodies, a style completely different from the traditional Chinese norm.

Mr. Guo’s crane and monkey paintings offer a feeling of universality instead of endemicity, with a spirit parallel to universe and nature, confined to nothing and originating from nowhere.
