Item description for Ji Dachun by Yao Qian, Li Xianting & Ji Dachun...
This 180-page monograph of painter Ji Dachun covers the artist's early Cy Twombly-inspired works to his more recent cartoon-based satires. His use of pencil and ink lines and white space resonates with traditional Chinese portrait painting. The satirical content of the works, however, is as contemporary as it is compelling. The book contains an interview with the artist by Li Xianting, and several essays by other Asian Art critics.
Essays by, Yao Qian and Li Xianting.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ji Dachun?
good overview of Ji Dachun's works Jun 3, 2006
Ji Dachun is a quiet and humorous artist. The simplicity of his works may look whimsical but his works are very original and have depth beyond the humor.
This book shows about 90 of his works from 2000-2004. The essays are informative, casual, but slightly lacking in critical remarks. Reproduction of the color is very good, and printed on heavy stock paper.
