Pan Jianfeng

Pan Jianfeng (b. 1973) is a conceptual artist working predominately with paper and ink. His background and techniques are rooted in tradition, but his works are strong and contemporary. He exiled himself to a medieval Finnish town, Porvoo, after 17 years working as a graphic artist in Shanghai, and committed to rediscovering himself as “son of calligrapher”. Having devoted himself to brush practice, he seeks ways to develop new social mediums to enable spiritual growth and facilitate future human communication beyond languages and cultures. His work have won multiple prestigious awards and have been exhibited in major museums in East Asia, Finland and other countries.
