Born in Shanghai, China, Fan Dongwang studied traditional Chinese art at Shanghai School of Arts and Crafts (SSAC) in 70’s and later became an art teacher at SSAC.

As an established Shanghai artist, his work has been exhibited regularly in Shanghai Art Gallery since 1982, including the 1986 Shanghai Art Museum Inaugural Art Exhibition and the 1987 Shanghai International Art Festival. As a member of the top professional body Chinese Artists Association, he was awarded the Prize for Excellent Work for Shanghai International Culture Exchange.

In 1990 Fan migrated to Australia as an artist of ‘Distinguished Talent’. He studied Master of Arts at COFA, University of New South Wales in 1995, and received his Post Graduate Award and Doctor of Creative Art at Wollongong University in 1999. His doctoral theses Shifting Perspectives and the Body established a theoretical model for comparing the differences between the representation of spatial depth in Chinese and European paintings. He currently lives and works in Sydney.

Materials are to be prepared and provided by the teacher for the workshop. Students are not required to bring materials to class.
I will provide a small kit for each student: a small quantity of Chinese ink and watercolours, 2 brushes for use and some newspaper, bamboo paper, rice paper, plastic water containers, small palettes or dishes for mixing ink, pencils and tissues, which are sufficient for each student to use in this workshop.
