Mo Dafeng has become renowned in both China and the United States for his skill in balancing his subjects with the air and light that surround them. His harbor and shore landscapes are praised for their lyrical quality. In "Southport Marina," Dafeng brings his careful composition and sensitive eye to the beloved harbor of Southport, Connecticut. Sunlight washes the decks of the waiting sailboats as they gently rock.


Mo Dafeng
His love of the American landscape, the fog-shrouded coast and all things romantic is informed and illuminated by his youth and education in China. Born in Shanghai the son of an art professor at the Art Academy of China, and educated at the People’s Liberation Army Art Institute in Beijing, Mo was one of the few artists ever honored with shows at both the National Theater and the National Gallery in Beijing. He only came to the U.S. in 1987 and fell in love with the beauty of the land. Mo was one of a number of Chinese arts who attracted the attention of Dave Usher, the late founder of The Greenwich Workshop, who was a pioneer in gaining exposure for their work in the United States. "The things I see in this country are very well suited to the kind of painting I like to do," he says. "The realistic landscape in a dreamlike context." His boats and lighthouses and even trains appear out of a mist, like a vision taking shape. It gives his work a lyrical, haunting quality that was celebrated in exhibitions both here and in Asia. Refusing to rest on his laurels, however, he also attended the Pratt Institute’s School of Art and Design in New York, graduating in 1993 with a Master of Fine Arts. In both countries, fellow artists never fail to be impressed with his remarkable ability to balance his image’s subject with the very air and light around it. To his pleasure, he finds many of the same moods in America that he grew up with in China. "I guess it just goes to show," he says, "that our similarities are greater than our differences."
