Biography

Shuai Tan (Chinese name Tan Shuai) was born in Chongqing, China in 1966 and studied art at the Chongqing Light Industry School.  He finished his studies and began his career as an artist exhibiting his artwork, while working as an instructor from 1986 to 2005.  Today, many art institutions and collectors have collected his artwork.  He has been published with media coverage by over a hundred different media organizations, both in China and abroad -  Toutiao, Global Art Network, Sogu, Sogou, Netease, Phoenix News, Chinese and Foreign Art Network, Baijiahao, Daily Express, Yidian Information, Douban, UC, 360 Art, and many others.

As an artist, he has his own personal style and concept about art - "Painting is a visual art. The first thing that pierces people's perception is intuition. Although theory is important, it is not the painter's primary focus. They are more concerned with the subject and direction of painting, how to paint it, and what style and technique they should use. When deciding what the content should be, the artist needs to have the technical skills on how to draw. Otherwise, it is impossible to talk about art as a painter.
