    About

    Shao Keping was born in Zhejiang and trained at the White Swan Painting School in Shanghai. He began making woodblock prints during the War of Resistance, when he was working as an editor in Zhejiang. Much of his early work was propaganda created during the war and in the new society after 1949. In the early 1960s, art was less explicitly political, but still reflected positive aspects of life. In this print, Shao shows the start of a busy day on the Huangpu River. The traditional boats in the foreground are boldly outlined and filled with flashes of bright colour. People live and work on these boats. The small vessels contrast with the modern industrial and transport ships and Shanghai’s majestic skyline, outlined in light tones in the background. The coloured water and sky pull together the various elements of the composition. Shao continued using this multi-block method through the 1980s, often highlighting industry and development in river scenes such as this. Shao Keping has been much honoured during his long career. At the age of ninety, he was still working eight hours every day.
