Coming from a family of artists, Paul Pei-Jen Hau has distinguished himself as a figure uniting Chinese ink tradition with modern western artistic techniques. After studying in China and then Japan, Hau moved to California and began exhibiting his work locally in the bay area. He has since had shows back in China and in 2002 the Hau Pei-Jen Art Museum opened in Eastern China. Hau’s career has been marked by his successful fusion of Eastern and Western aesthetics and his commitment to furthering the Chinese Arts outside that country’s borders. He is the founder of the American Society for the Advancement of Chinese Arts (ASACA). As a teacher at the Pacific Art League since 1957, Hau continues to work with students on brush painting while continuing to produce his own brush works. Most recently, he was named an Honorary Professor of TianJin Institute of Art in TianJin, China.
