Mian Situ, Born in 1953, he trained in his native homeland of Canton (now called Guangdong), China and appears to be part of a remarkable cultural transference. This transference occurred when 19th-century European academic realism traveled to Russia under the reign of the Czars. There it developed in the service of Communism as Socialist Realism and was later imported to Mao's China. Western oil painting techniques were fostered in the People's Republic during the Cultural Revolution and were subsequently available to talented and hardworking young Chinese. Situ was one of the best, and when he emigrated to the West, he brought his skills with him.
Mian’s work has the remarkable quality of appealing to all types of art patrons, young and old, those purchasing their first piece of art and those with established museum-quality collections. His collectors, admirers, and potential collectors anxiously await his new work. Mian Situ’s work was selected for the 2002 Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage show in which he won the Masters of the American West Award, Thomas Moran Memorial Award, and Patrons’ Choice Award.
