Li Wang  李旺

Li Wang’s private world is quiet, peaceful and gentle; an atmosphere of humor and grace pervades everything. Girls lay in bed as if they don’t know they are striking a pose, naturally, carelessly showing off their beauty. This is a fantasy of a Chinese intellectual. Not much is provoking. The girls are elegant and smart, but still sexy and playful, and most importantly, beautiful and sluggish. His intention is obvious. A single rose lies by the side of a girl. Sometimes, Li Wang includes himself in his painting, a lonely man with old-fashion round black frame eyeglasses, sitting by a girl’s side or holding a girl on his leg, admiring while looking at or drawing them. His humor and gentle romanticism are hidden somewhere in the painting. There is always a lone crow, a symbol of his soul in his world, but most of the time no other companion. But he is comfortable with himself, his book, his bird, enjoying his quiet state. 

here is  a new message is delivered:  “crossing”, a Buddhist term meaning the course of savableness, or to be saved as a human goes through suffering and reaches the shore of eternity. There is a boat or a choo-choo train, his people are happily crowded on it, playing their instruments, each doing their own things, with their telescopes in hand looking forward, pointing forward as if they see the shore of hope and happiness right at arm’s length, what a wonderful and joyful scene! Don’t you think this is what we all desperately need to see now?  

There are also some other symbols in his painting, an umbrella that indicates protection and shelter, his people, friends always under the protection; an empty cage that means the soul is free; etc.

The lines of his adroit skills make his world more elegant and beautiful. In the tradition of Chinese ink drawing, the expression of the line is a basic and powerful technique, no artist can avoid if he is to prove he is a fine painter. Li Wang’s colors are different, not much like those you find in history. A lot of warm tone colors are applied, and less black ink. He lets his colors spread densely on rice paper, making his paintings original and unique.
