Dr. Fan Kuanling （i.e Fan Guangling，Kenneth K. Fan）, Oriental Renaissance man, President of the first World Congress of Poets in China, one of the ten contemporary master painters in China just completed an “Art Revolution Trip” through 13 countries of Europe successfully. And he was welcomed by many in China. He said in Shanghai today that: “The time for 21st century art revolution is coming! Jointly we must start the revolution now and march for a brighter tomorrow.”
The thirteen countries march included Russia，France， Luxembourg，Germany, Czech Republic，Slovakia，Hungary， Austria，Liechtenstein，Switzerland，Netherlands，Belgium and Spain. Dr. Fan exhibited, exchanged, visited through many different parts and things。That shocked him most was that most of the European master pieces of art are locked in big name museums and they belong to old times. The modern ones on the streets are of no-strength, no-innovation, no-power. Where are the art masters? Where are the imaginations？Where is the power of art？Who knows?
In China, the undesirable things in art are also happening. Many big-name artists are gone with the winds. In the art world of the East there are mainly coping the past.
Dr. Fan understands that it is the moment to revolutionize modern art and march.

During Dr. Fan’s art revolution march in Europe he usually made speeches in three languages, Chinese，English and French.
In Dr. Fan Kuanling’s English World Art Revolution European speech, he said: “In my heart, I am only a medium poet, a small painter from the East. I’m trying to improve myself through the long trip from the East to the West….. “
However，many people in the world didn’t think so.
“Dr. Fan Kuanling is the sun from the East to the West,” said Dr. Mary Rudge, an American nominee for the Nobel Prize.
The distinguished former President of France, Hon. Giscard d’Estaing’, said to him, “Dr. Fan, you are the Renaissance man who brought the art revolution to the world”.
Respectable former Philippine president Fidel V. Ramos said to him: “Your art is world’s top. my home is your home!”
In 1999, the leading French newspaper Le Figaro honored Dr. Kuanling Fan as the “Grands Artistes”.
Internationally, the name of Dr. Fan was honored as one of the world’s 12 grand painters” along with Gauguin, Picasso, Pollock, Kooning, Van Gogh, Munch, Matisse, Klimt.
Dr. Fan had also been a cultural commissioner and English interpreter for Generalism Chiang Kai S he k. He also led the first cross-strait economic and cultural ice-breaking tour from Taiwan to China in 1988.
Dr. Fan said: “In this chaotic, war-fighting world, we need to cultivate good seeds to lift us into the beautiful world. We need the Oriental Renaissance to blend into the western Renaissance”.
He can do it – since He has so many people around the world to help him. Such as Dr. Novin Afrouz, Hon. Pierre AIDENBAUM, Ms. Wally Thomas Hermes, Prof. Alexandre Del Perugia, Prof. Francesco Correggia , Dr. Natica Angilly, Dr. James P. Wang, Dr. Yiling F. Chiang, Chu Sue Ling, Dr. Philip Fan, Gene Fan, Fan Rong’s horse painting, Ge Jianjun’s calligraphy painting, Lu Jiahe’s Chinese painting, Albert Fan, Alisha Rodrigues, Dr. Daisy Fan, Prof. Peter Alatsas, Peggy Fan and many more.
Dr. Fan used “Seed Girl”, “Life Is War” to draw his “poetic paintings” onto the world.

The golden background of the “seed girl” screen represents the splendid and sedimentary history of human culture and a golden dream. Oriental egg-shaped face with Western eyes to shape the noble, future desire, confused and thoughtful. The body is sentimentally attached to the earth, breaking the net out of the neck is a breakthrough of bud. Hair is the tension and level of progress. See the reality of confusion, the future of expectations and prospects for human peace, happiness, beautiful pursuit. Seeds in the open.

“Life is War” is a girl’s meditation. Where is the human race under the threat of war in all directions? Only pure and Beautiful mind can beautify the world. About art, Dr. Fan cries as what the French president Hon. Emmanuel Macron said: “Let’s revolutionize and march!”
