Zhou Changyi: Silver Prize Winner of Chutian Stars Award 10-07-07

  Reported by Zhou Yiming (

  It was announced recently that Zhou Changyi, a painter in Xianan won the silver prize by his Chinese painting the Intoxicating Autumn in South Hubei. This prize was awarded by Chutian Stars Award, which is the authority of Hubei Art and Literature. 

  In recent years, based on the folk of South Hubei, Zhou Changyi devoted himself to landscape painting and created a series of pictures reflecting distinguished features of South Hubei, which included paintings Famous Town Tingsiqiao in South Hubei and Mist Disappears while Mountain exists, etc. He won prizes successively in The Sixth Chinese Landscape Painting exhibition and The Twelfth Chutian Stars Award for those paintings, which were published on nation cultural core periodicals such as Culture Monthly, Chinese Art Annual and some others.

  Zhou's landscape paintings mainly have two styles, one was the panorama  based on sketching or scenery in his mind and the other was liberal style based on the impression or perceptual cognition of nature. The first kind of his pictures was obviously transferred from the scenery of his hometown by means of art. Stack cliffs, cascading waterfalls and flowing springs were surrounded and decorated by low clouds as well as thin mist; huts in mountains and boats on the water made valleys more lively; open rivers, virgin mountains together with floating clouds became basic components of a picture, and they also coordinated with bamboos and brooks painted  with brushwork of great delicacy; Green trees, rapid and clear rivers, azaleas over the hills and dales were what the painter mainly saw; glorious and precipitous mountains became a source of inspiration for them to do art creation. All the natural scenery depicting by Zhou Changyi were typical illustration of harmonious co-existence between man and nature. His representative pictures are Intoxicating Autumn, Reading among Flowers, the First Autumn Rainfall in Mountains, etc.

  Zhou Changyi represented the features of South Hubei, in his unique way. That's why his works could symbolize Xianning and were widely accepted in Xianning as well as China.
