artist Tang Wei Min original

Early Autumn

Early Autumn | Oil on Linen | 28" x 20"

A classically styled portrait in a new Old World twist… the imaginative, illuminating and intuitive artistic skill of master painter Tang Wei Min is on breathtaking display. Utilizing fine, transparent-like glazes of paint to create the luminescent skin and piercing gaze, Tang tangibly evidences a mastery of technique. This painting forces, excites and insists upon deep contemplation of the figure and her life in 16th Century China/Tibet.  The regalia (an homage to Rembrant’s period of artistic creation) adds to the mystique, inviting further investigation of a brilliant and breathtaking visage…  accolades abound for Tang Wei Min!

Tang Wei Min believes in romanticism. Using light and composition inspired by past masters, along with the perspective of classical painting, he creates silent portraits full of drama. A beautiful girl in exotic costume, striking Tibetan jewels, different from common portraits, his muse is a fantasy of perfection in the spiritual realm.

Tang Wei Min fell in love with the Western oil painting tradition because of Rembrandt. Ever since early childhood he copied his works, he adores his ability to light his subjects, to distinguish the more important details from the less important and to portray the inner thoughts of his models. Tang Wei Min has combined Western Art traditions with an Eastern philosophy. The coexistence of roughness and gentleness in the world, great intentions and cruel realty, wonderful thoughts and imminent death; this is the essence of his philosophy.
