Footnotes

  • Born in Hong Kong in 1948 of Guangdong Panyu descent, Liu Guowei immigrated to San Francisco with his family in 1964. Together with his father, he studied under Huang Leisheng (1928-2011) and Zheng Yuebo (1907-1991) for many years. Liu's keen interest in Chinese painting was ignited at an early age when he saw his father's prized collection of a Qi Baishi catalogue published in 1959. Since then, he has painted in the style of Qi, often depicting familiar subjects such as fruit, crabs and cats, conveying feelings, freshness and spontaneity in life.
