霍剛 HO KAN ( b.1932 )

Ho Kan was born in Nanjing, China, graduated from the art department of Taipei Normal School. While attending Taipei Municipal Jianguo High School as a boarder, he met Li Wenhan from the Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts, and began to study art and western painting theory. Later, he studied in Li Zhongsheng's studio, and after graduation, he devoted himself to teaching, promoting children's free drawing and creating various artworks including sketches, oil paintings, and ink paintings. He often chooses landscapes and still life as his subjects, and prefers cool colors such as blue, green, and gray.


In 1956, he co-founded the "Eastern Painting Association" with eight other great artists. In 1964, he went to France, and later settled in Milan, Italy. After going abroad, he adjusted his style by reducing the line strokes and shifting towards brighter colors.
