Rose, painting by Dapu (Zhang Ai Min) 862. Rose, original oil painting by Zhang Aimin (Dapu), 2012

Dapu (Zhang Ai Min) has been broadening his artistic repertoire, over the last several years, to include abstract expressionism and a composite collage style.  If you look closely at the painting, you will see a temple with the typical Chinese bamboo roof with turned up corners, a dagoba, a tower, typical of Tibetan Buddhist architecture, along with other structures of the typical Tibetan village.  Done with rosy hues, Dapu invites us to see his area, in the Himalayas, through a rose colored lens.

We have a number of works by Dapu, in the Leona Craig Catalogue Gallery.  To view them all, just click on: Dapu Page

Ancient Forest, painting by Xu Zhao Qian   Ancient Forest, original oil painting by Xu zhao Qian (2012)

Trees are actually the oldest living things on our planet, today, with ages reaching over 4,000 years.  Even in our neighborhood of Old Dongshan, in Guangzhou, we have many old trees that are at least several hundred years old.  It is trees and plants, in fact, that made it possible for animals to populate the planet, so, it is appropriate that we celebrate trees, in art. 

Xu tells us that it took him seven months to complete the detailed work in this painting.  The branch work stretches out in minute detail, and the cows only serve as a reference to show the enormity of the large trees.  The grasses and shrubs in the foreground are also done with great detail.  The sole human figure serves to show how small a part man is in our earthly environment.

Vast World 1 by Jin Ming Lee

Vast World 1 by Jin Ming Lee
740. Vast world 1 & 2, two watercolor paintings by Li Jin Ming (1973) 广阔天地1 水粉   

These two paintings are about Maos drive to motivate agriculture, much like the giant project begun in Dajai, which was a symbol of success.  Li, himself, had experienced work on a collective farm, in the 1950s, and all of China was working hard to develop agriculture, so that everyone would have food on their tables.  All of the bicycles, in the backgrounds of both, make them even more perfect, given that China is the "bicycle kingdom", even today.

It is pure socialist realism, done in an untraditional impressionistic style, as Li was a student of the Chinese Impressionist, Xu Jian Bai.  So, perhaps, we should call it socialist impressionism.  We offer it as a two panel composition.

Female Nude, painting by Tan Xue Sheng 783. Female Nude, original oil painting by Tan Xue Sheng

Nude: original oil painting by Xue Sheng Tan (1963)

This is one of only a few portraits that we have in our gallery by Tan.  Moreover, for this one portrait, Tan has tried his hand at nude portraiture. 

Trained by Lin Feng Mian (Feng Mian Lin), from among the original artists who brought modern Western oil painting styles to China, in the early part of the 20th century, Tan tends to be impressionistic with simplistic honesty, in his style.

The setting is unusual also.  It's as if she is sitting on canvas with canvas on the wall in the artist's studio.  Or it could be expression of rocks and a forest.  We would ask, but it's more fun to guess, in this case.

Venice Canal by Meng Liu 710. Venice Canal, original oil painting on canvas by Meng Liu (2002)

As an Italian, in China, in the art business, I am always glad to find Chinese paintings of others parts of the world, especially from the Mediterranean.

Meng Liu has traveled in Europe, and, like a true artist, he has recorded some of his memories in paintings.  This is one of several that he painted in Venice, and we just loved the colors: after all, the colors of our gallery's logo are the primary colors, which also dominate this painting.  It is even more precious because China is also famous for its water villages, and Chinese painters have done many paintings of them, like of the one that we have here, in Guangzhou, called Xiaozhou.  Here we see one of Venice, Italy's bridges with a motorboat passing underneath the bridge and a gondola docked along the water's edge.

Meng Liu is a fine artist from the old northern Chinese capital of Shenyang.  He did many paintings in impressionistic styles in the late 1990's to early 2000's, and we are very impressed by his style in those with this one as a good example.

We offer several paintings by Meng Liu (Liu Meng), in the Leona Craig Catalogue Art Gallery.  To see all of them, just click on: Meng Liu Page.
