Fan Zeng, artist, said, "Coming back to the classics means that we should seek inspiration from the essence of tradition, in the choice of subject matter and painting techniques. "

Fan Zeng is distinguished for his figure paintings. He follows the footsteps of the great painters of the Song dynasty in his use of simple and vigorous brush strokes and dynamic delineation of form.

Most of his works, sought after by collectors, extol traditional Chinese culture.
