Gu Xiong was an artist living in Beijing in 1989. Through close contacts made as a student at the Banff Centre for Fine Arts, he escaped from China just after the Tiananmen Square massacre, leaving his wife and child behind. Gu Xiong settled in Vancouver, and continued his artwork. He soon got the attention of local galleries. Finally reunited with his small family, Gu Xiong earned a teaching post and the accolades of art lovers nationally and internationally. His work now hangs in the National Gallery in Ottawa and at galleries in Montreal and Toronto. In French: La poire jaune: L'histoire de Gu Xiong
