A European philosopher once said: “Genius is good at thinking, and he keeps thinking non-stop”. Zhang Guiming is good at thinking, and his thinking in turn leads to his renovation of painting and his success of painting. I hope he continues to think, in fact, after the success of his flower-bird paintings, he starts to create landscape painting and figure paintings. The creative skills of the landscape painting and figure painting require are different from that of flower-bird painting, so he adopts new skills. Some people say that the paintings of Zhang Guiming would come to an end, since there will be no further major changes, This is not necessarily true, as long as Zhang Guiming continues to think and do not drop the brush in his hand, he will certainly achieve greater accomplishment.
As far as I know, painters go deeper basing on the tradition could go deeper ceaselessly, such as Huang Binhong, Qi Baishi, the older they get the better their painting become., The more profound the skill is, the more innovative the painting is. The people who are good at change must constantly change, if they stop changing, the life of art will dry up. How to change next, need to restore the traditional point? Or even move further towards the abstract path? Zhang Guiming is a man good at thinking, and he may have better solutions. According to the accomplishment he has achieved, he has already been the brightest new star of the Shanghai style. Undoubtedly he has occupied an indelible position in the history of Chinese painting art.
