Renowned Chinese artist, Li Zhengwu, was born in 1947 in Chengdu, Sichuan. He practised and specialised in sketching, gouache painting and oil painting from the 1960s till the end of the 1970s. In 1982, he ventured into Chinese traditional painting under the tutelage of the great master of Chinese painting, Sun Zhuli, studying the philosophies of Chinese painting and poetry. For more than forty years, he travelled the country extensively to seek inspiration, to enrich his painting styles and to sketch. His tireless efforts have eventually opened his mind to the true essence of art. He is currently a member of the Chinese Calligraphers’ Association and the Chinese Artists’ Association.

“A capacious heart wide enough to embrace the heaven and earth,” “Taking in vital energy from heaven and earth, merges the essences of all objects.” These are the phrases that Li Zhengwu relates to when he creates art. With simple strokes, Li brings out the many layers and dynamic of human beings. The truthfulness and grandeur of his painting style reflects the magnificence and liveliness of nature. This exhibition showcases 40 pieces of creation. Every subject of the paintings, whether humans, mountains and waters, flowers and birds, is a convergence of the mind and environment. The essences of beings are thoroughly manifested through these paintings that awe the viewers in so many ways!

This exhibition displays the charms of Chinese ink painting. It is hoped that the exhibition will accentuate the beauty of Chinese art to people; and contribute towards building a society which is rich in culture. There will also be an art talk with the title “Chinese Ink Delight in the Art of Li Zhengwu” where Mr Li will share on his journey of creating art.
