Qi Qun Pan
Qi Qun Pan’s abstract art is a series of radiant worlds on canvas. His linear forms, laid down in translucent layers, intersect organic pools of iridescent color, just as thought and emotion interact in the mind.
Pan comes from humble beginnings. During China’s “Ten Years of Chaos” -the Cultural Revolution that lasted from 1966 to 1976, Pan was in his teens and forced to work as a farm laborer under the harshest of conditions. The Cultural Revolution essentially shut down China’s educational system, prohibiting Pan from attending high school. His innate artistic talent and his dream of perfecting his skills carried him to survive.
In the early 1980’s, Pan and three of his friends emerged as pioneers in Chinese modern art. Soon after, they immigrated to America with the sincere purpose of experimentation, seeking to mix their traditional aesthetic values with Western main -trend art. After arriving in Los Angeles, Pan devoted years to study at City College and the Otis Parsons College of Art and Design.
Qi Qun Pan dedicates each day to the creation of his art and has succeeded in garnering world acclaim. Since the Spring of 2001, Pan has also undertaken the task of extending his artistic vision by means of his Tibetan Stone sculptures.
