Review of Wang Jieyin

Compared his counterparts, Wang Jieyin is an elegant meditator and emotional stroller. Those paintings, with abundant meaning in simple sketches, often reveal his free and easy mood. His works are wisdom graffiti.


Compared his counterparts, Wang Jieyin is an elegant meditator and emotional stroller. Those paintings, with abundant meaning in simple sketches, often reveal his free and easy mood. His works are wisdom graffiti. Relaxing sketches are trails of his feeling. He creates a second nature or what I call spiritual landscape, featuring symbolism and expressionism.


He is an outstanding print artist. In his oil and wash paintings, we can also easily find lithograph, spray, decoration and structure, all of which are from hands good at print. His academic knowledge is really wide and diversified, influenced by primitive culture and west modern art. Folk traditional Chinese art such as bronze ware, pottery, blue printed cloth and wood cut has brought a return in his soul. It's not just a description for tradition on surface, but a return to free vision. I have detected nostalgia from culture gene in his restless experimental try.

  We cannot be confined in existing rules or completely copy others if we will keep the art tradition of a country handed down. It is easy for using any existing symbol but it's not the case if an artist will realize a transformation of visual language while keeps confident spiritually, "Painting follows time" is an eternal issue to artists living in any era. Here I’ve found the answer in Wang's works.
