Four Chinese Master Painters

Artists’ Reception

Sunday, February 3rd, 1-4 PM

Gallery North and Silena Gallery are holding their first joint international artists exhibition in February 2019. “The Echo of Faraway” will feature paintings by a group of established Chinese artists including Chinese pigment painter, Hao Wang, and oil painters, Guochen Cui, Jinliang Li, and Liwei Lang.

 

 Celebration of Love by Hao Wang

Hao Wang, who specializes in abstract Chinese pigment ink paintings, combines Chinese Folk art with western aesthetics and vibrant color to convey a story of love in each of his paintings. Hao was born into a traditional Chinese family of folk artists and showed a strong interest and talent in creating art at an early age. As he matured as an artist, he developed a stunning style that is very distinct from other contemporary artists in China. Hao’s work has been exhibited in Chinese art museums and in nationwide art competitions in China, as well as in Egypt and Italy. His works are in the permanent collection of the Guan Shanyue Art Museum in Shenzhen, China.

 

Harbor View by Guochen Cui

Another featured artist will be oil painter and plein air artist, Guochen Cui whose works are included in collections worldwide. Guochen, a national signature artist of the Chinese Native Art Association, studied under Wenxin Zhang, a Master Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America. Through the years, Guochen has absorbed various influences including impressionism to create his own unique style, which is characterized by free, bold brushstrokes, and yet maintains a sophisticated elegance. For over four decades, he has created countless masterful paintings capturing his hometown, canal cities, the countryside and various distinct locations in China.
