Ho Kan
Fusing geometric abstract symbols and forms of the western art with Chinese culture, creating a unique style of his own.

Ho Kan was born in 1932, in Nanjing, China. He graduated from the Department of Art at Taipei Normal School in 1953, studying painting under the supervision of Lee Chun-Shan. He co-founded the "Ton Fan Group" with many other artists, and was a member of the "Eight Great Outlaws". Ho studied the concepts and techniques of the western art, combining the characteristics in Surrealism to his expertise in calligraphy and stone inscriptions, which became his main inspirations in his artworks. After he moved to Italy, Ho was strongly impacted by Pollock, Klein, and Cleveland's artworks, in which they transformed Oriental calligraphy. He then fused geometric abstract symbols and forms of the western art with Chinese culture, creating a unique style of his own.
