on my last trip through southern france I stayed in a hotel in ROUSSILLON, provence. a mural in the entrance hall caught my eye because of its vibrant colors and expressive brushstrokes. it reminded me of VAN GOGH, the motif was one of the villages in the neighborhood, GORDES. I found a catalogue of the artists work on a table next to the wallpainting. JEAN PAUL SURIN, born in 1946 in the ardennes, france, a student of the ecole des beaux arts in paris is for some years now represented in galeries throughout the world. he is a nature painter, applies the oil colors in thick layers on the canvas using a palette knife as well as brushes, sometimes it looks as if he wanted to sculpt his paintings with the palette knife. I am fascinated by his color combinations, you have to spend some time in southern france to believe they really exist. no wonder that most beautiful spot on earth attracted so many artists in the past and still does. see yourself below and let me know what you think…

self-taught artist QIN TIANZHU was born in 1952 in chengdu city, sichuan province, china. he is now a member of the chinese artist asssociation and a professional artist in sichuan poetry and calligraphy. QIN has created a unique artistic style with beautiful compositions and classic coloring that won him awards in china and japan. his brushstrokes look so effortless thrown on paper and his stylized birds are just stunning. during my time on MULAN the definition of POETIC SIMPLICITY was created, – here is an artist whose artwork truly belongs in that category, more than anybody else.
