The Bride


The Bride | Oil | 16" x 12"

Blushing, and with a slight smile developing at the corners of mouth and eyes, this Bride awaits.  Tang Wei Min again demonstrates his ability to subtly utilize chiaroscuro to move the eye forward in examination of what at first glance appears a simple subject.  Deft handling of background spaces are mirrored in her hooded cloak, in precise yet “sketched” style, lending an air of lightness to the work.  A delicate delight for all who collect fine portrait 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.
