A solo exhibition of Chinese artist Wang Hongjun was opened in January 2018 at Russian Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg. The exhibition organized by the foundation introduces the one of the most popular Chinese abstract expressionist to visitors.

The fundamental element of the creative method of the artist is a combination of traditional Chinese art and Western oil painting technique.

The color is the main thing for Wang Hongjun. Rhythm, energy, and even composition of his paintings are based on a balance between traditional Chinese colors of the Five Elements. This being said, the color ratio is always spontaneous as the artist gives vent to his emotions.

The artist’s signature style is bright pastose strokes of the paintbrush partially removed from the canvas by a palette knife. This technique helps Wang Hongjun creating distinctive patterns revealing dim outlines of persons and landscapes like in a dream. The paint removed by a palette knife looks like translucent watercolor brush strokes leaving some airy and light impression.

Paintings by Wang Hongjun are displayed in many museums of China, Russia, Azerbaijan, Italy, Australia, Belgium and other countries where they received encouraging response of critics and spectators.
