Born in 1954 in Hunan Province, China, Li Zijian started to learn painting from Mr. Chen Xichuan at his age of 15. In 1986, he became a member of the Chinese Artists Association and went to the United States for further advancement. Li Zijian set a target for his work, which is "Do not be the feast for eyes only. Go deep and be impressive". In his more than 40 years of artistic career, he upheld an attitude of realism towards his creation of work and advocated the concept of “art for life”. With a strong sense of historical responsibility and cultural mission, he created a lot of vivid and active artistic image, demonstrating the beauty of human nature in his works. The year of 1991 was the most important year of Mr. Li Zijian's artistic career. Taiwan's eminent monk, Master Xingyun, was deeply moved by the brimming benevolence and kindness expressed by the pictures after viewing Li Zijian's paintings. So the Master asked Li Zijian to create 100 paintings that themed to promote universal brotherhood of humanity. After that, under the full support of Master Xingyun, Li Zijian began to assemble his collected paintings and hold exhibition tour of “Human Nature and Love” in five continents since 1993.
