1993 Art critic, Pierre Cabanne, writes: "Tehchun's works are really some kind of natural release and a poetic dedication which is dithering and ardent, not restricted by those theories, rules and limitation of visions. By using the persuading lines, he makes his vivid characters appear from his inexact paintings as well as perfecting his fantasies and imaginations. It is really surprising that there is no perspective in the way that westerners use lines. He sees things from a distance, and then he creates multiple points, and uses superposition and multi-angles in his works. In 1999, he was honored as an Art Academician of France, the highest honor ever received by any Chinese artist in the international art world. Chu Teh-Chun made just a few lithographs, including this series of eight poetical renditions."
