Alok Hsu Kwang-han is a Zen calligraphic painter from China whose work is a confluence of the beauty of Chinese calligraphy, the spontaneity and depth of Zen, and the evolution of healing in Western psychotherapy. An artist with a diverse background, he came to America in 1950 as an 11-year-old refugee from the civil war in China.
He earned academic degrees in mathematics, Christian theology, sociology, and psychology of religion. He has taught sociology of religion and psychology of transcendence, and, in China, has translated and published 20 books on meditation. He has made 20 journeys to India to explore and incorporate the sources of Eastern spiritual practices into his art.
Alok has exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum, the Swedish National Museum of Ethnography, the Great Hall of Exhibition in Shanghai, and the Water Harp Temple and Garden in Pune, India. At his home studio in Sedona, Arizona, he teaches individual immersion tutorial retreats for experienced artists.
