Wang Xue Jun


Wang became known for his “Blossom” work which was selected and collected for Barbie’s 50th year anniversary. His Song dynasty flower was later used for the Chinese Pavilion in 2010 Expo. He uses historical flora and birds from Song Dynasty as the background in most of his work. To him, the subtlety of the birds and flowers are of soothing contrast to the chaotic hard world at present.

The vibrant colors and the ‘Pop’ art style of his works are his expressions for the positivity and prosperity of China today. The use of the historical elements are his symbolical reminiscences of the peacefulness and tranquility of China in his childhood.

Wu Jun


His passion and patience in his works reflect the central theme of Buddhism. His ‘N’ series symbolizes the infinitely of human existence. The endless ‘N’ is similar to the infinity symbol, it has no beginning and no end, repeating continuously into eternity. The ‘N’ could be painted separately on a canvas but on some canvases they are tangled together to form abstract paintings with recognizable shapes and forms. He uses Chinese ink together with acrylic paint, forming a unique texture. In his paintings ‘N’ series of black and white, Ying and Yang pays a central part. His ability to mix black and white either by painting or pasting black and white newspaper prints on terra-cotta formed a serene and balance composition to his works. The use of exuberant colours reflect another dynamic in his art pieces.

Wu Jun has traveled extensively to Europe and his works has been collected in Europe, America and Asia. His works have also been in the auctioned in Hong Kong.

Born in Beijing but based in Shanghai, Wu Jun does paintings, photography, sculptures and collage works. He is a hardworking artist who seeks perfection in all his works. Born in a family with rich cultural background: his forefather was a famous poet and father a great violinist, Wu Jun’s destiny as a visual artist is not a surprise.

Kang Can


With the rapid development of urbanization and globalization, China is witnessing a process of internationalization with a surprising speed. In this fast developing post-industrial age, we, surrounded by superfluous information and images, are becoming callous and fatigued, which bemuses us and set us doubting the reality.

Thanks to our doubts, we have found a sensitive excitement prompting us to seek our inspirations in this fanaticizing consumption age. Babies, as the symbol of the human purity, came to this world, simple and unadulterated. When put together with typically contemporary symbols in a certain fragment of a narration in a super-realistic way, they will possibly break through the existing notion of pattern of these symbols, creating a brand new meaning.

Ma Tse Lin


Ma Tse-Lin explained that while he is not Buddhist, his parents are and he grew up surrounded by Buddha icons and the Chinese philosophy of taoism.The expansion and combination of taoism and Buddhism led him to conclude that the image of Buddha epitomizes China and the spiritual and simple, peaceful connection mankind has with nature and the universe.

He was also influenced by the abundant,and numorous, images of Chairman Mao that occupied the public places of his childhood through around 1980.These memories translate into portraits that create the illusion that Buddha,s face or body is too large to capture on a single canvas.

Ma Tse-Lin first studied art and graduated from the Central Institute for Arts and Crafts of Beijing. Before that, he was a violinist who was pushed toward a career in art because of his own native talent and the political climate of the times.There is a rich vein of musical talent in his family. His grandfather, Ma Si Cong, is a renowned Chinese violinist, while his mother played piano. He played violin and some piano until the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) outlawed music, the possession of musical instruments and art in an effort to banish pre-communist culture.

Unable to play the violin, he embarked on the quieter pastime of drawing. He took to the mountains and drew charcoal, watercolor and pencil portraits and landscapes. In 1979, three years after the death of Chairman Mao Tse Tung, the arts were once again free to flourish in China. He was awarded one of 15 places available for all of China at the National Art School of Beijing. His slot was the only one slated for his province.

In 1985, he became the first Chinese student of the Decorative Arts School in Paris, according to a biography in an exhibition catalog for Galerie Loft in Paris. While studying in Paris, he began painting in an abstract, action-painting style and departed drastically from the rigid re-creationist instruction taught in China. He continued to try to fuse his Eastern and Western training and was awarded a scholarship to Manhattan,s Cooper Union under the auspices of the Decorative Arts School.

Mr. Tse-Lin said his paintings are gaining popularity in Europe and America because of a growing interest in the peaceful teachings of Buddha and the quickening pace of modern day lives. We have forgotten ourselves because of material wealth,, he said. ,The beauty within ourselves is becoming less and less and we are afraid of losing this special part.

 

M Tse Lin's oil on canvas pop-rendition of the Buddha's mask brings the palpable mood of the spiritual leader to an environmental-size installation.The face is scumbled with a trompe-l'œil surface of decay and billboards, rendering a multi-layered and contemporary baroque image.
