Ink Rhythm: From the East to the West
XinYong Wang Solo Art Exhibit

Opening Reception: May 5 at 1:00 pm

Exhibit: May 1 - May 31, 2015


(Sponsored by Confucius Institute At TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY )

Mr. Xinyong Wang is from Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province, China. He is a member of the Artists Association in Jiangsu Province, and one of the most potential young artists in the circle of Chinese painting.

Xinyong has great learning and ability in both calligraphy and Chinese painting, and he is especially good at elaborate-style Chinese painting and the regular script in small characters of Chinese calligraphy. His painting not only deeply roots in soil of Chinese culture, with focus on inheriting the essence of traditional painting philosophy and techniques, but also focuses on the combination of aesthetic tastes and values of the modern age, seeking breakthrough and innovation from tradition.

This solo art exhibit at this gallery shows Xinyong’s latest paintings during his travels and living in the United States since July, 2014. Most are inspired by the US natural and cultural landscape: squirrels, birds, trees, red fruits, wood piles, Pueblo church, and so on. Xinyong insists on Chinese traditional painting culture as a foundation, blending modern innovation, depicting American landscape from the perspective of China art, to show appreciation and treasure for the natural environment in his art works, revealing the beauty of harmony. His paintings reflect his self-culture, thoughts and inner feelings, with rich flavor of Chinese literati paintings and fine artistic appeal.

In the early summer at TAMU campus, we hope these art works will lead you into the art world of elegant Chinese ink painting, showing a visual feast of the cultural exchange between the East and the West.
