Pilgrimage of an Old Man | Oil | 24" x 20"

With the feeling of a yet to be finished work, Tang Wei Min ablely conveys multiple complex emotions via light, texture, and human expression. Rich and bold complements of color deftly surround the figure, giving presence to a history of humanity as written via the aspect of age. Beautiful and captivating, this original will be welcomed into any family of fine art, private or public.  Do notice the convincing and correct translation of time of day as this pilgrim walks along… is it sunrise or is he on a setset pilgrimage?

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.
