Wang Mingming
Penglai, Shangdong Province, China 1952

BACK

Seventies calligraphy works were wrote by all his heart.   “Every time I imitate the calligraphy, I can find the new feeling.”

 

Wang Mingming was born in Penglai, Shangdong Province in 1952. He began painting during his childhood, and those early works have been exhibited in over 30 countries as well as winning International awards. Throughout the 1970’s, Wang undertook an apprenticeship which saw him working with Wu Zuoren, Li Kuchan, Jiang Zhaohe, Liu Lingcang, Lu Chen, Zhou Sicong, Yao Yuodou and many others. These years saw him develop a solid foundation for his artworks, as well as helping him to improve his techniques.   

 

In 1978, Wang was admitted to the Central Academy of Art, but did not attend the school. In the same year he transferred to the Academy of Fine Art in Beijing to be a professional painter. Wang’s works successfully incorporate both the broad and mystical brushstrokes of ancient Chinese scholar paintings and the attitudes and ambience of contemporary life. This provides Wang’s unique and distinctive style which is conceptualised and enjoyable.
