王沂東

Wang Yidong is a professional painter graduated from Beijing Academy of Painting. Hes a member of Art Committee of Beijing Academy of Painting, trustee of China Artist Association and CAA Oil Painting Committee and vice-chairman of Beijing Artist Association. He is no doubt one of the most established Chinese Contemporary Realism Artist living today.

Wang Yidong’s paintings, with a kind of natural romanticism, convey various scenes. These scenes are the most timeless element of daily living—an optimistic outlook towards life. The artist describes the landscapes, persons, things and passions with his excellent techniques and lively colors, leading us into a world filled with Orient Spirit.Striking red, mysterious black, the warmth of sunshine and beautiful country girls are frequent elements in his works. In such a world, we can re-discover those pure, peaceful and beautiful feelings within ourselves. These works weaken woes gradually, bringing passion and hope to the viewer.

Wang Yidong belongs to the first group of Returned Chinese Artists from America. Upon returning to China, he began to convert himself to a style that vibrantly expresses the Yimeng Mountain Area’s traditional culture that are his roots. Today, renowned Contemporary Art Museums and Private Collectors from all over the world collect his works.
