My Chinese name is Binghu Shanren.
My studio name is : the studio in the old harbor and also studio at the icelake.
I was about 20 years old around 1968 I saw Chinese and Japanese painting from the Sung and Ming dynasty painting in old German books from the 20ies. Also the reproductions weren’t very good I was a revalation for me.
Paintings from 文人畫 wénrénhuà and immidiatly iI was fascinated by this incredible modern painting, also painters like BADA SHANREN, LUO Ping, Shi Tao, the specially in Japan well known 牧溪法常; pinyin: Mu-ch’i Fa-ch’ang and many others, also by calligraphy – antique and modern. I wanted to learn this, tried to get the material, impossible in this times in Germany.
Many years later I got the material from Chinese friends, the four treasures, and since this I like to paint with Chinese ink, highly influenced by Chan (chinesisch 禪, Pinyin Chán) and last year I tried to achieve triple championship (ink Painting, calligraphy and my own poetry).
Since the late 80ies a work together with Gu Gan 古干 and I made many paintings together with him.
