• This is the first comprehensive study of the contemporary French painter and calligrapher André Kneib

• Written in a clear and lucid style, this book is addressed to a broad audience: to scholars interested in contemporary global cultural practices, and to a general readership that will discover the joy of viewing the art of André Kneib

• The readers of this text will find especially useful the author's close formal accounts of the individual works of art, set within the context of a broader discussion of the technical innovations and stylistic development of André Kneib's calligraphic art

The Radiance of Color, the Vibrancy of Ink is the first comprehensive introduction to the remarkable calligraphic art of André Kneib (b. 1953), an artist and scholar living in the Alsace region of France. Kneib has gained fame and recognition in China for his highly innovative works in the traditional medium of Chinese calligraphy. This study establishes his place and defining role in the history and development of contemporary Chinese calligraphy.

Foremost among his many contributions is the integration of acrylic color with the traditional medium of brush and ink, forging a synthesis of the painterly and the gestural that has truly revolutionized the practice of Chinese calligraphy. Situating this discussion in the context of the global cultural economy, it frames an understanding of contemporary art, which can no longer be defined simply within the borders of a national cultural provenance.
