Zhang Guiming graduated from the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts. His knowledge of traditional art laid a very solid foundation for his innovation. Perhaps he believes that there is more foreign flavor in the layout of his painting, so he deliberately puts more Chinese flavor in the aspect of ink. His using of pen is very flowing, dignified, making thickness and thinness, dryness and wetness enhance each other’s beauty. His use of ink is more unique, with a stroke the coke ink and light ink are there at the same time. The coke ink is very clear while the light ink leaks out an elegant halo from both sides of the coke ink. All these are enough to disclose the charm of Jiangnan painting style. The bright colors of Zhang Guiming’s paintings are even more eye-catching. He adopts the folk method of filling colors, which is not rigid and at times exposes his “cunning” In his. Summer, the color of the lotus leaf is of blue, light blue, light green color, with occasionally a few gaps seemingly casually, it is hard to create a graceful and clear mosaic effect, but he did it. He hooked slightly along the upper part of the outline of the lotus while painting the whole lotus green. Through the different simple coloring, we can see the aura of an artist.
He adopts a rather abstract path, learning from both west modernism and Chinese folk forms, but the core element is from the traditions of Chinese literati paintings. For example, his pursuit of style and ink reflects his classical aesthetic interest. His brilliant and modern style embodies his wisdom that helps him to get out of troubles. I firmly believe that this wisdom will lead him to go further......
The lotus pond, swimming fish, women, flowers in his paintings are all from his childhood in his homeland Shaoxing rather than dreams of surrealism. Zhang Guiming’s blowing colors is not a copy of Miro’s world of color, his inspiration derives from the bright festive atmosphere of his countryside Shaoxing. . From these clear, bright and noisy colors, audiences can have a high spirit of feeling the Shaoxing resounding strokes when the little boat skims over the surface of the river.
