Artist Tang Wei Min Original

Village Beauty

Village Beauty | Oil on Linen | 39" x 32"

Bold and brilliant jewel tones excite and enrapture as the Village Beauty takes a backward glance at the viewer.  With a solemn nod to Rembrant, Tang Wei Min continues the tradition of detailed and sublime portraiture through use of light, shadows, and that which is seen.  There is scope and scale within, particularly noticeable in the regalia (the double coats and headdress) that sets this beauty apart as a Tang Wei Min unlike any we have ever seen.  We also love the pose wherein we are engaged via an over-the-shoulder penetrating and revealing glance.  A most heroic accomplishment and something to cherish for a lifetime…and beyond.

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.
