Plum Blossom

Plum Blossom | Oil | 32" x 24"

Tang Wei Min approaches each canvas with a determined artistic purpose and reverence for depicting the elegance of a period and culture alive in his art.  Each embroidered medallion,  blossom, and gem has significance & shades of meaning. For example, the delicate plum blossom, bravely blooming in the midst of winter, symbolizes perseverance & hope, which is  detailed in the background porcelain pot, the hanji paper illustration and into the sprig on the table top.  Our reverence for Tang Wei Min has been shown by our years of representation as well as for many art lovers across America who have recognized his museum quality paintings as…the essence of Fine Art.

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.
