Artist Tang Wei Min Original

Royal Concubine

Royal Concubine | Oil on Linen | 39" x 32"

Royal status is conferred upon a poised and youthful feminine form, clutching her prayer beads.  Alluding to the style of the Dutch portrait Masters, Tang Wei Min brings fresh focus in masterful portraiture via exquisite details, translucent treatments, and careful use of light and shadow.  Suggestions of silken sleeve patterns harmoniously echo throughout her adornments, inviting repeated closer inspection … Do you see the subtle embroidered pattern in her saffron silk coat? Where in your collection would a royal subject be enthroned? Remember: art collectors KNOW  that seeing the original from three inches, three feet, and thirty feet away allows the discovery of every aspect of a great work of art such as Royal Concubine.

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.
