Born in 1964 in Nanjing, China
1988 Graduated from the Suzhou University Fine Arts Department (formerly Suzhou Silk Institute of Fine Arts).
Wang Chengdong’s works express various themes on religion, philosophy, history and cultural statuses.
In the ‘Jiangnan- Segment Series’, southern humanistic elements are visible in his works, a place where the artist grew up and lived.
In these visually astonishing creations, upon almost completing a picture the artist will use a palette knife and blade through the surface of the painting, forming a type of fragmented, sectioned appeal and blurring the original details. This act of crossing out, separating and collision of the lines and the superimposed subject matters fully showcase a sense of intricacy, producing a different sense of unpredictability and energy in his works.
When we look at Wang Chengdong’s works, they all appear to freeze in a state of uncertainty, coincident with the contemporary social thinking and questioning. Wang Chengdong’s unique artistic approach of the southern Jiangnan scenery is as if he is trying to thread the Jiangnan memory into lines. It sketches in our memory like “segments”, Intriguing and coated with a layer of supremacy.
