Artist Bio: Hao, Boyi was born in 1938 in Shangdong Province. During the cultural revolution, he was dispatched to the northern deserted land. Facing the harsh and tough new environment, he accidentally found arts as his refuge. He cut wood to be his block and painted the beautiful sceneries of the black deserted land by his graver devoutly and passionately.

As time goes by, Hao Boyi's woodcuts were no longer just objective recordings of his environment. Above the visual representations, they also show the unity of nature and human as well as the devotion for life. His style is soft, fresh, elegant and subtle. His artworks are simple but not empty. They show unlimited flavors and vitality of the north land to its full extent quietly; the concrete and the abstract blend harmoniously and peacefully.
