is a prominent contemporary Chinese oil painter with a broad range of
influences from impressionism and Pre-Raphaelitism to Andrew Wyeth, in a
style moving from realism to a more free-form and poetic manner. In my
opinion, one of the most ‘complete’ figurative painters from China.
He’s House with Attic series is a set of 44 paintings to accompany
Anton Chekhov’s short story usually titled An Artist’s Story or The House with the Mezzanine
in English. The choice of an impressionistic style to the works is presumably a deliberate evocation of Chekhov’s period, and He explores the space and psychology between the characters with a striking ease.
Attempt at Anton Zeck in the style of Patrick Nagel. This one was really tricky, because to my knowledge, Mr. Nagel never drew or painted any POC (which is really unfortunate and disappointing), so I really didn’t have any references and a hallmark of his art is the pure white skin. But obviously that won’t do for Anton! So I think it turned out OK despite this, and is at least SOMEWHAT reminiscent of that style.
