Firewood Gang
by Mian Situ

Mian Situ’s epic paintings of the Chinese immigrant experience and their role in the opening of the American West have made him one of the most important contemporary painters of our time.

Born and raised in China, Situ counter-balances these sweeping historical works on the Chinese American experience with intimate portraits of the people and places of China itself. These paintings often focus the rural experience rather than the historical. A painting such as Firewood Gang shares the joy and exuberant nature of life in pastoral China.

“Years ago, when I visited a remote area of the Yunnan Province, I came upon a group of children carrying firewood on their way to school,” recollects Mian. “During their days at school these children, whose homes are far away, sometimes have to cook their own meals in school. They usually bring with them their own firewood and vegetables, enough for a week, to school. Collecting firewood for their families, and other chores, are part of their routine at home as well.”
Firewood Gang is simply a jubilant work of vibrant color and high-spirits guaranteed to bring the joy of life to where ever it hangs.

About Mian Situ

Born in Southern China, Mian Situ received his formal art training in his native homeland of Guangdong, formerly Canton. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the prestigious Guangzhou Institute of Fine Art. After instructing for six years, he earned a Masters in Fine Art. Immigrating to Canada, then later moving to the United States, Mian’s paintings clearly reflect his upbringing in the rural countryside of his native China. His artistic diversification of subject matter, from the people of the small villages and farming communities going about their daily lives to the exquisite portraitures as well as his most recent works inspired by western historical themes and American landscapes, all reflect the sensitive dedication of this Master Artist.

Mian has been recognized with many national art awards. During the 2002 Masters of the American West exhibition and sale at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles California, Mian Situ received the Masters of the American West Museum Purchase Award, the Thomas Moran Memorial Award for Artistic Merit and the Patron’s Choice Award. In 2003, Mian was honored with the Thomas Moran Memorial Award, Artist’s Choice Award and Patron’s Choice Award. Most recently, in 2005, Mian was presented with the Artist’s Choice Award for his painting, The Word of God.
