SINGAPORE – Having staged numerous successful exhibitions in his home country of China, and in various parts of Europe, award-winning artist Wang Weixin, who coveted the first prize at the Washington Arts Festival in 1987, will be holding a rare solo exhibition in Singapore for the first time. Famed for being China’s leading watercolourist and copper-etching artist, Wang will also be gracing the opening of this exhibition, aptly titled ‘The Art of Wang Weixin’ on 22nd of March 2007 at iPRECIATION . Wang’s art is widely collected in several prestigious European and Asian museums including the Contemporary Museum of Arts in Laverune, France and the Wenzhou Museum in China.
Masterfully capturing the poignant notes of a capricious instant, coupled with a concise and worldly articulation of his innermost thoughts, Wang creates art that is both visually captivating, and famed for its philosophical depth. Wang’s extraordinary gift in “Freehand Sketching”, which exemplifies how touching moments can be recorded swiftly through meticulous observation, enables him to secure the most stirring scenarios in his art; with the supplement of colours, his watercolour paintings are vivid expressions of beautiful memories lost in the realm of time. In the artist’s own words:“Whenever I see scenes or objects that move me, I tend to be so moved that I’ll be at a loss. If I can quickly sketch the lines, I’ll feel consoled. Then I’ll apply some lively watercolours to give it more life…”[Abstract from RomanticSentiments, the Aesthetic Realm of Art: Theory of Wang Weixin’s Art]
His steadfast devotion to art, and his undeniable talent, isolates him from the rapid developments occurring in mainstream art, propelling Wang into a league of his own. “The Art of Wang Weixin” will showcase approximately 30 pieces of the artist’s most brilliant creations, dating back to the 1950s, till present day. Works are now available for preview at our gallery. For further information or artwork enquiry please firstname.lastname@example.org or 65 6339 0678
