Cheng Shifa was a Chinese calligrapher, painter, cartoonist, and art educator. Cheng was born in a small Chinese village outside the city of Shanghai in 1921. He originally studied medicine before deciding to focus on art. He graduated from Shanghai Art College in 1941. Cheng staged his first art show in 1942. He created his first comics pages in 1949, which were noticed by the Chinese publisher that hired him in 1952. A year later, Cheng Shifa drew 'The Scholars', a comics adaptation of a popular satiric novel from the 18th century. He continued with 'The Painted Skin' in 1955 and started teaching painting at the university of Shanghai.

His return to painting was a good choice, because he soon became an internationally acclaimed painter. However, Cheng Shifa also continued making comics, like 'Kong Yiji' for illustrating short stories for Lu Xun, who is considered to be one of the 20th Century's best known Chinese satirists, 'West Lake: A Collection of Folktales' and 'The Story of Brave Sword'. He then made a tour through the Yunnan, a southwestern border province known for its ethnic diversity, to get inspiration for his series 'Zhaoshutun and Nannuonuo' and 'Ebing and Sangluo'. Cheng ultimately became best known for his traditional brush paintings of minority ethnic groups. His work stressed the unity and connection between different ethnic groups. Cheng died at a hospital in Shanghai on June 17, 2007.

Being adept in drawing human figures, landscapes, flowers, birds, comic pictures, Chinese New Year Celebration Paintings and illustrations, Cheng developed a strong personal style through his rustic art. His works have been widely exhibited inside and outside China, winning numerous awards.

国画大师程十发 (珍藏版)


程十发擅长连环画、插图、年画、山水花鸟画、人物画。早年受陈老莲影响,后来青藤、八大山人、石涛、新罗山人的画风也给他启示,他的特殊表现方法,给美带来了隽永的趣味。在人物、花鸟、山水画的三大门类中,他善于通贯其中融为一体,具有纵横挥洒,浑厚、古朴、生机盎然的艺术效果。程十发创作了不少影响深远的连环图,他说:“这类艺术,绝对可以做到通俗而不庸俗,古代的佛、道、宗教画,水准极高,晚年的任伯年就为买客的会客厅画了不少较俗的画。日前有些人认为,画惯连环画的画家再改变方向创作水墨画,会有不良的影响,以我个人来说,我是采用中国画的传统方法来处理连环图。” 《儒林外史》插图获1959年莱比锡国际书籍装帧展览银质奖,1958年华东地区书籍装帧展览一等奖;《西湖民间故事》插图获1979年全国书籍装帧展览荣誉奖;连环画《画皮》获1960年全国连环画评选二等奖。中国画作品有《东方》、《广陵散》等,《歌唱祖国的春天》获第一届全国青年美展一等奖。出版有《程十发花鸟习作选》、《程十发花鸟近作选》、《程十发花书画》1-9集等。
