Born in Guangdong, Huang Chun-Pi was a reputable painter named “the Three Overseas Master Painters” along with Zhang Daqian and Pu Xinyu. Devoted to painting at a very young age, Huang learnt painting from ancient relics. He believed that Chinese paintings should follow the traditional way and rejected Lingnan art style, thus dedicated most of his times to studying old masterpieces. At the age of 26, Huang held his first solo exhibition. At the age of 40, he devoted his lifetime as an artist, a professor, a scholar and an art collector.
