Description
This is a typical Chinese market in old Chinatown, right here in America. In a market like this, one could find the ingredients for the same food they ate in China and prepare it in exactly the same way, says artist Mian Situ. The market looked very similar to those in my childhood hometown in Southern China, where I was often sent on errands, so this painting was inspired by both personal childhood memories and late-19th century photographs of San Francisco. There's no better time than right now to begin collecting Mian Situ's Fine Art Limited Editions. Art of the West magazine recently designated Situ one of the 8 True Masters of today's Western art world. The original painting of Chinatown Market, San Francisco, 1878 sold for $179,200 at the 2007 Auction, nearly $90,000 above the highest estimated price. This exquisite Fine Art Limited Edition, signed by Mian Situ, and in an edition of only 50, is sure to quickly disappear.

The Artist

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. Mian Situ is represented by Trailside Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and Jackson, Wyoming. He lives with his wife, Helen and daughter, Lisa in California.
