The appraisal and evaluation committee of Chinese traditional art of the people's Republic of China evaluates the value of the artwork: 8200 yuan / square foot of traditional Chinese painting. He is now a journalist and senior editor of Hong Kong Greater China Culture Press, executive vice president of Hong Kong Greater China culture and Art Research Institute, and deputy chief editor of Zhujiang literature and art press.
Mr. Zhong Shiqi has been fond of painting since he was a child. After that, he taught in a middle school for more than ten years. In order to develop his art career, he changed his major to painting. He often participated in international and domestic art exhibitions and competitions, and won ten selected awards, first prize, bronze award, silver award, Gold Award, gold cup award, special gold award, honorary Gold Award, special international honorary Gold Award, golden Jue award, Chinese Elite Gold Award and outstanding achievement Gold Award. Works in Beijing Art Museum, China exhibition hall, South Korea, Japan, the United States, Canada, Thailand and other touring exhibitions. The Ministry of culture of China, China Federation of literary and art, world organization for education, science, culture and health, etc. have awarded many honorary titles such as "outstanding Chinese artist" and "outstanding Chinese artist in the world". His works are included in dozens of works such as Chinese art collection and world art collection. His life has been included in dozens of ancient books, such as the Chinese art family, the world art family, the Chinese expert dictionary, and the world's celebrities.
Mr. Zhong Shiqi's calendar painting and his exploration and innovation
Mr. Zhong Shiqi is now committed to the research and innovation of the calendar commercial painting (also known as new year's painting) in the Republic of China, which is on the verge of extinction. He combines this commercial advertising painting with Western expression techniques to form another pure art, which is both inherited and innovated. He is indeed a "innovator" in the art field, and also a rescuer of the calendar painting in China. I'm afraid that there are only a few or only one person in the Chinese art circle who has made such serious innovation and classification of the traditional calendar year painting and devoted themselves to professional, full-time and special pure art. Therefore, the Chinese art circle believes that Mr. Zhong Shiqi is the only founder of pure artistic creation who separated from commerce in China's calendar painting. He gave birth to the founder of pure artistic Chinese painting in the late Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China. We can see that his works are all created by Mr. Zhong using imported non fading mineral pigments, discarding the carbon fine pigment powder which is easy to fade, and combining various types of brushes (oil painting brush, brush, etc.). The characters in the works are lifelike. Most of them are famous talented women of ancient and modern China who have considerable influence in Chinese history. Or the painters are also calling for "equality between men and women"! At the same time, it is not difficult to see that the work completely exceeds the old calendar style. The composition not only maintains the original aesthetic requirements of Chinese painting, but also adopts the western scientific realism techniques in modeling and color. It is difficult to create figure paintings, but the calendar paintings of the artists are still equipped with such a rich background, and will not affect the theme of the painting at all, which shows the self-cultivation and attainments of an artist. The color contrast of "thick, light, cold and warm" and the integration of environment make the works have a sense of three-dimensional space, which seems to make us understand the real meaning of "perfect" in Chinese dictionary. From every stroke of the work, one can feel the seriousness and preciseness of the painter's creation. When you look at Mr. Chen's paintings, you can even feel the breath and heartbeat of the painter's creation at that time. From his paintings, you have fully appreciated the precious time and a lot of energy paid by the painter, which deeply moved you. Compared with the so-called famous painters' doodling and the so-called disgusting "art innovation" of some people, I'm more supportive of the artist, Mr. Zhong Shiqi, who is both refined and popular, is down-to-earth, practical and realistic, does not seek fame and wealth, and creates serious, rigorous and popular works.
"Inheriting Chinese traditional calendar painting has a long way to go"
Chinese traditional calendar painting has always been belittled by the art world, but it is indeed another kind of traditional painting produced by our great motherland and the great nation in history. Mr. Zhong shouldered the heavy responsibility, gave up fame and wealth, and put it on the top in order to save it. We admire him, support him, and appreciate him for making so unknown and unknown for our Chinese art world This is our real reason for supporting him. In today's art development and some floating atmosphere, who dares to choose this endangered "cold door" to inherit and innovate like Mr. Zhong?! Mr. Lou Shibai, a famous artist in the Chinese art circle, deeply felt that Mr. Zhong Shiqi's artistic achievements were hard won and far-reaching. He held his hand hopefully at the Beijing Art Exhibition and said: "we must continue to create! We must continue to create! ". CCTV international channel "industry star" program also conducted a special interview on his artistic performance.
