Tang Wei Min original oil painting

Waiting for the Evening

Waiting For The Evening | Oil on Linen | 32" x 24"

A study in serenity and dressed in a simple garment adorned by a singular set of beads, a simple yet elegant headdress garners focused attention. Allowing the deep shadows to heighten the clarity of an alabaster-esque skin tone, Tang Wei Min builds, via his brushes and wisdom, a journey back into 16th century Tibet.  The artist's hero is Rembrant, whose work was created during the same century… thus, this and most of Tang Wei Min’s paintings are an homage.  The personality of the young maiden is also readable and remarkable as she waits… the approaching evening.

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.
