FitzGerald Fine Arts, based in New York, specialises in contemporary Chinese ceramics and ink paintings. With artist studios across China, including Beijing, Jingdezhen and Hong Zhou, FitzGerald Fine Arts have inside knowledge of the most talented artists working there today.
Many of the artists in their portfolio are classically trained in the ancient art of Chinese porcelain production and design, but their western roots and contemporary influences have resulted in the subversion of traditional designs so the contemporary artistic voice of China is now making itself heard after decades of political suppression.
Launching as a new artist in FitzGerald Fine Arts’ program at Masterpiece 2015, Burcu Oz was born in Istanbul and studied Fine Arts at New York’s Cooper Union where she trained in a variety of media including painting, printmaking, and photography. She works with ink, graphite and charcoal on paper to reference ancient landscapes with a minimalist eye.
Renowned throughout China as a master contemporary ceramicist, Zhu Di’s exemplary command of the high-fired glazing technique has earned him both domestic and international acclaim. Trained at the Beijing Central Academy of Art and Design, Zhu Di was taught the classical techniques and imagery of China but being based in Italy brings a different pastoral stance to his landscape scenes and softens the edges of the classical Chinese lines.
Focussing exclusively on painting and calligraphy, Mansheng Wang’s works are frequently shown at galleries and museums in China and the USA. Training in classical literature has lent his work Chinese influences of both landscape and images but he imbues them with a fresh contemporary spirit.
These artists will all be showcased on the FitzGerald Fine Arts stand at Masterpiece London art fair (25th June – 1st July), Royal Hospital Chelsea, Chelsea Embankment, SW3 4LW.
