A collection of paintings by the artist Wai Ming
The world that we live in today, has provided us with technology so that we can appreciate art from all over the world. We can either view artists from different countries either on the internet, or if fortunate enough we can travel to other countries and experience different cultures for ourselves and expand our own catalogues of work by taking in what we see and capturing it on paper.
Here is a collection of paintings by an Artist called Wai Ming. Wai Ming was born in Canton in 1938, the son of a school master with nine children. Extremely poor as a child, he was raised in Hong Kong enduring many hardships. There, Wai Ming developed his drawing techniques without any art education and began painting what he saw.
He paints oil paintings, mainly of oriental subjects. As you look at the pictures you can see why his work is admired and collected all over the world. They capture a very real image, one that is very life like and could easily be mistaken for a photograph. All his artwork is very simplistic and draws the viewer in, so much so that you almost feel as if you are in the picture living the moment.
