Peking Art Associates is proud of presenting Charlie K. Sheard, the respected abstract Australian artist, at ART021 Art Fair, November 2021, Shanghai. He has had a several decade career focused on institutional exhibitions and the pursuit of academic rigour, both in terms of self-development of and the dissemination of knowledge. For seven formative years during the 1980’s, Sheard worked from his studio in Cambridge, The United Kingdom, and has been based in Sydney since 1990, where he founded an art school in 1995.
Sheard has a long and deep attachment to China where he has been exhibiting since 2012. Complementing his regular lectures at the University of New South Wales and The Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney, Sheard is now a Distinguished Mentor in an Oil Painting department studio (the 5th studio, focusing on material and abstraction) at The Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing, and most recently, has been invited to teach painting at Peking University. A bilingual English-Chinese catalogue raisonné on the artist will be produced by Peking Art Associates in 2022. Charlie Sheard is represented by Peking Art Associates in Beijing.
