Tang Wei Min original oil painting

Winter Holidays in Tibet

Winter Holidays in Tibet | Oil on Linen | 47" x 39"

Tang Wei Min brings forth a rare multi-subject work in his subtle yet commanding style of Rembrant-esque portraiture.  Elaborating on that which is physically present, and allowing the scene to play out in real time, Tang calls forth a moment of communal culture from Tibet.  A woman, dressed for the holidays, engages the viewer as father and daughter are focused away; a fellow reveler completes the celebrating group.  A masterpiece worthy of endless investigation…Give yourself time to do so by inviting this Holiday into your home.

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.
