THE GARDEN OF SOULS
Jinbao Han


"The ancient flow and spirit of the traditional Chinese painters and calligraphers inspired my works as a contemporary Chinese abstract artist. My artwork has inherited the very spirit of the 5,000 year old Chinese Culture as well as the fundamental essence of its many, dynamic philosophies to be found in the traditional Chinese paintings. My art style has added the delicate infusion of the contemporary as well as the dramatic visual language tone of attention "
"My works include the recognizable eastern temperament, the exotic ingredient of the contemporary visual style, as well as the interpretations of composition and aesthetics that form the very chemistry of my own personal style of art. My efforts embody the spirit of the traditional Chinese painting style not only in the views at the appeal of the physical world but also permits the viewer to perceive the unseen and exciting reality of the unexplored universe "
"I have chosen to communicate directly with the viewers through the use of vibrant color experiences. Combined with my years of western studies, I have been able to mold and create a unique visual dialogue and experience resulting in a true "East Meets West" style of fresh, exciting, and vibrant form of expression"
"My work is the sum total of my many journeys through the bold lands of imagination, as well as my fresh perspectives of Mother Nature and the richness of my own universe. My overall artistic mission was to lift the viewer fromthe gravitational pull of reality and soar to greater heights, to gain entrance to a more energized celestial state of being and personal involvement."
