Wu Jian

by on February 19, 2014

WU JIAN Chinese artist, born 1942, residing in the United States

The paintings of Wu Jian entice the viewer with their tenderness and attention to detail and motion. Clearly evident is the artist’s ability to focus on subtle events that often pass unnoticed. Wu Jian examines these moments with a focus so profound as to transcend their physical boundaries. His well trained eye Combined with his masterful technique capture only what is essential.  Each brushstroke embodies volume, color, texture, and the most ephemeral of all qualities, the human spirit. Wu Jian imbues his canvases with a rich and delicate life of their own. Whether the subject is a simply placed floral Still life or a classically poised ballerina, the artist’s mature and poetic vision radiates from the canvas.

His technique: a unique blending of Classical, Realist and Impressionist styles which utilizes an ultra smooth canvas as its base and builds the surface upward in a symphony of blended Hues and gradients of light and color.

Member of the National association of Fine Are of China, Lecturer of Oil Painting at Shanghai Teachers college, professor of Art at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and exhibited widely Throughout China. Wu Jian is an artist of utmost merit, and his paintings stand as at testament to years of thoughtful study.
