Jiang Tiefeng

Original Mixed Media on Rice Paper

For Jiang, success followed success. In 1979 he illustrated “The Secret of Jinchun Tree,” which won the first prize as the best illustrated book out of Jiangsu Province. His painting “The Legend of the Water Sprinkling Festival of the Dai” was featured in the documentary film “Yunnan Scene.” In 1980 the illustrated books “Little Red Riding Hood”; “The Ugly Duckling”; and “A Shi Ma” were published. For “A Shi Ma” Jiang was awarded Second Place in an international United Nations competition of illustrated books. In 1981, Jiang’s work was featured in the “10 Artists From Yunnan” show in Beijing, and then, in 1982, was prominently featured at a show in Hong Kong, which also featured the Yunnan artists as well as some of their followers.


In 1982 a National Geographic reporter who was doing a story on China saw Jiang’s paintings, and brought some back to  the U.S. A friend of the reporter brought them to the Fingerhut Gallery in Minneapolis, where Jiang’s work met with great success. In 1983, Jiang came to the United States as part of a cultural exchange program with the University of Southern California, where he became a visiting Professor of Art. Under the sponsorship of Allan Fingerhut, Jiang moved to Minnesota with his wife Zhaolin.


For Jiang TieFeng, success in America quickly followed. His rich, strong color, and exotic but intimate imagery struck an immediate response with the American public. Jiang’s talent and uniqueness quickly brought his work to the attention of critics and museum curators nationwide, and this resulted in many public exhibitions.
