"As the famous French film producer Jean-Luc Godard said, It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to. Q. Wang has taken me further into the appreciation of my surroundings, people, and love." - Gary Sorkin
Chinese Artist, Q. Wang moved to America in 1995 to work as a computer Engineer/Programmer. In 2006 he attended the
West Los Angeles College to study Oil Painting and in 2011 a collection of his paintings "Spirit" was published.
Q. Wang’s painting style is entirely new and unique. His artworks were reported in more than 10 countries, in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Italian, and Russian. Q. Wang developed his painting style -- "freeism" by using free colors, free shapes, and free strokes to do his artworks. The result is a free atmosphere and an imaginative space.
" Generally speaking, before Manet, people all try to paint alike, after Manet, people tried to paint differently. It's a broken process. Monet broke the brush, Van Gogh broken the plane, Matisse broken the colors, Miro broken Shapes, Picasso broken the construction, Abstraction broken the object. Before Van Gogh, people all painted what they saw, and let the viewers see what they painted. Since Van Gogh, people began to paint what they thought, and let the viewers think what they painted."
Q. Wang paints the spirits, something you can not see and you can not think, you can only feel it by heart. His paintings have no details but have characters. Each of his painting is different from others. Q. Wang's painting is a combination of contemporary art with Chinese culture.
