Fan Zeng is a master of the "pure-line-drawing" technique and also specializes in "splashed ink" and figure painting.
The honorary Doctor of Letters conferred on Chinese painter Fan Zeng, 72, by the University of Glasgow, marks the first time one of the United Kingdom's oldest universities has honored an established Chinese artist.
