About The Artist
When Wang moved to Heshan in 1993, he soon fell for this suburban countryside in the far south of China. The migration of adapting to a brand new lifestyle and environment was challenging for Wang, who grew up in Hangzhou city. Wang was captivated by the sincerity of the locals and the humbleness of the land he would yet explore. Here, Wang took the opportunity to present and transition to the en Plein air approach, taking inspiration from Realism and Romanticism.
The artist himself later says, “You can improve your technique by constantly practising; however, to express one’s interpretation through realistic painting. It takes a lot of time to research and contemplate… from the choice of colour that presents the local vibe and my style explicitly.” Wang’s practice focuses on his personal experience with the scenes he painted, using different brushstroke techniques that captured fleeting and routine moments.
Although Wang had been considered an established artist, he never stopped exploring. Wang made countless trips across China and Europe to continuously refine and redefine his style and technique. Wang’s practice uses oil paints — traditionally associated with the west — for its peerless ability to capture the Chinese landscape, presenting to the world harmony of cultures through the Eastern definition of the Western medium.
