Mr.Jiyun An

Born in Henan Province, China in 1954, Jiyun An started to learn calligraphy and painting since he was 5 years old. After years of study, Jiyun An originally invented a unique painting method to complete a traditional Chinese painting within a very short time by using both hands. The method works when both hands wear a special glove and dip the ink, then draw on the Chinese art paper at the same time. Within six to eight seconds, a traditional Chinese painting of Baishi Qi’s style or Beihong Xu’s style can be completed. These traditional paintings are of landscape, fish, shrimp, crab, horse or cabbage. Jiyun An’s original painting method with gloves and natural mud and water from Yellow River has won him a national patent. In 2005, Jiyun An received the Special Recognition Award at the National “Beihong Xu” Calligraphy and Painting Completion.

  Mr. Yonghuai Zhang
