Silent Night

Silent Night | Oil | 32" x 24"

21st Century Chinese Master painter Tang Wei Min has captured a moment of quiet reverence & contemplation, prayer beads mindfully passed finger-tip to finger-tip, as a fu lion guards the space made sacred by the very act of devotion itself.  It is a devotion to the craft and techniques of the 16th century Masters which brings the attention of the artistic world to Tang Wei Min’s commanding portraits.  Details and symbolism abound, revealing endless moments of fascination to the viewer as eyes roam the canvas. Revel in the interplay of light not only upon her face, but upon the dramatic colors & subtle embellishments of her garment… then utilize our zoom feature and a deeper view can be had.  Best yet, connect with one of our art consultants and realize our full-service gallery.  We’d love to chat about the chiaroscuro effect (discovered by Rembrandt) and how Tan Wei Min is creating museum quality paintings for art lovers who see what we see and so proudly represent.

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.
