Tang Wei Min original oil painting


Wisdom | Oil on Linen | 20" x 16"

A weathered and wisdom laden countenance peers out from beneath a handsome cap of fur. We can imagine the value of his profound knowledge gained over a lifetime on the plains of Asia.  A most amazing, nearly silken, beard broadcasts to all his status, sophistication and worthiness of respect of all he encounters. Via precise and composed brushwork, Tang Wei Min stirs emotion via a most unusual golden brightness in the chiaroscuro technique of painting. Here is a village sage who would love to have a conversation with the right art collector. This is a masterpiece… is it yours?

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.
