In 1978 he studied fine arts at the China Academy of Art, formerly the Zhejiang Art Academy, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1982, then began lecturing watercolor at the City of Wuhan Construction College. Four years after, Song was selected to further develop his skill at the provincial Hubei Art Academy. During his time there, he accumulated years of experience, painting, sketching, and working for a refined grasp of color and technique. Throughout his early career, Song has received numerous awards as one of the representatives of Chinese paintings with works displayed at international art exhibitions in the United States, Japan, Hong Kong, Turkey, and Singapore. He also had the honor of having four representative works collected and preserved at the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) and three works at the Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum. In 1988, Song immigrated to Canada and invested a passion for its vivid scenes of the broad North American landscape. While there, he travelled widely from coast to coast and gained some 20 years of experience forming his unique style of a mixture of brush and knife with attention to the unique natural detail, richer handling of light, shadow and depth in each piece, which has won him numerous awards in North American exhibitions and art festivals.

DU Kun 杜昆, 1982 ~ Revels of the Rock Gods | Surrealist painter DU Kun /杜昆 born in Sichuan, China, in 1982. Under the influence of his art teacher father DU began studying painting from the age of four, later graduating from Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts’ Oil Painting program. Today he works between Tianjin and Beijing as his base, and is particularly widely renowned as a young Chinese artist for his creativity and the brilliance of his techniques. Further, since his student days, in addition to his work as a painter DU Kun has been applying his talents in the field of music. He made his professional debut as a rock musician while still at art school, and has since frequently demonstrated his musical prowess. Developing from the city paintings of his early career which were pervaded by an atmosphere of intense mysticism, DU Kun has advanced toward a method of expression that makes use of allegories of religious aspects and contemporary societal criticism, as well as provoking rumination upon the actions of humanity. The artist began working on the ‘Gods of Rock Festival’ series in 2014, creating the works out of his own passion for rock music. While these are all portraits of rock musicians, within the portraits we see depicted tall pagodas (pavilions intend for rest or recreation), Confucian mausolea, Buddhist temples and other traditional Chinese architectural structures. Gods that appear in ancient legends, majestic mountain and cliffs, magnificent seas and rivers, roaring waterfalls and the leisurely twilight are woven together to create a subtle and unique world - a world in which both time and space, tradition and the avant-garde, music and painting are adroitly melted together. These works by DU Kun are masterfully original portraits, and surely they are also the sacred land that exists in the heart of every rock musician. DU Kun, artista di Pechino, amante del rock, influenzato ed intimorito dal potere del successo, dalla creazione della musica -lui stesso suona- e dall'aura che le star emanano. Da questa base parte la sua serie di dipinti “Revels of the Rock Gods” -in mostra a Tokyo fino a metà febbraio, ogni dipinto della serie è realizzato ad olio e raffigura il volto di un musicista come se fosse un tempio costruito a lui dedicato. I templi prendono in prestito elementi dal buddismo e dalla architettura confuciana, gli occhi diventano finestre, i rami, gli alberi o le cascate i capelli, la superficie diventa pelle, come le facciate di legno ornate con oro.
