Liu Yaming was born in Neijiang, Sichuan Province, where Zhang Daqian, a Chinese painting master, once lived. This young painter, who has gained a great reputation in the capital painting circle, started by self-study and succeeded by his love of oil painting.
His art growth experience makes people sigh. He studied painting as a young teacher, swept the doors of cinemas, worked in TV stations or studied painting. Finally, in 1985, he had the opportunity to study TV art design in the Fine Arts Department of Beijing Film Academy. At that time, his oil painting has been continuously self-taught with a professional level, its skills and reputation in the rich cultural atmosphere of the capital rapidly improved. He worked as an artist in two TV dramas, Desire and Story of the Editorial Department. Although the two films were well-known, he gave up his "iron rice bowl" for oil painting and became one of the so-called "blind flow painters" in Beijing at this time with bravery and perseverance rarely seen by ordinary people. Liu Yaming's whole life in Beijing is composed of hungry study, crazy creation and earning money with his mind.
Since 1988, more than ten national newspapers and magazines in mainland China, such as Fine Arts, China Youth Daily, Beijing Weekly, China Daily, Artists and Contemporary Artists, have introduced Liu Yaming and his works. In 1991, his oil painting "Tibetan elders with 89 descendants" became the cover of the inaugural issue of the German version of the Chinese magazine "Bridge", which received excellent appraisal and attracted more people's attention.
So Beijing Concert Hall Gallery, Changfu Palace Gallery, International Art Gallery, Tianlun Dynasty Gallery and Yansha Gallery invited Liu Yaming to display his works. The famous Beijing Yisen Gallery also holds an exhibition for Liu Yaming at the ancient Desheng Gate Tower. In the artistic atmosphere of blending classical and modern art, people can feel the appeal of Liu Yaming's oil paintings to the vision and the impact on the soul. He inherited the painting tradition represented by Rembrandt and sought the complete and pure classical beauty with the cold color and light. In the sunshine of the new century in Beijing, his oil paintings are full of modern charm from line to whole. No wonder so many audiences stayed for a long time before his paintings such as "City", "Makeup", "Grandma in Black Hat", "Green Silk" and "A Zhi's Stage". People who buy Liu Yaming's paintings include many painters, fans and collectors from Europe, America, Taiwan and Hong Kong, besides the land of insight in China.
In March 1994, at the invitation of the Roy Biff Museum of Art in Columbia, the capital of Russia, 31-year-old Liu Yaming held his first painting exhibition abroad. The young Chinese oil painters really gave the Americans with high vision a surprise OO a work entitled "grandma", on the canvas, the old man's deep and loving eyes are full of love and his own dull eyes, which has a kind of shocking strength; in the works like "naked bell", "Linlin", the Eastern women's tenderness and tenderness are strongly expressed; and the more that The portrait of the stubborn minority girl makes the visitor go to the mysterious Yunnan-Guizhou plateau through the picture, touching not only the Millennium Sunshine, but also the young and ardent heart of the painter. Many newspapers and TV stations, such as the New York Times and the American Asian News, reported the grand exhibition. The World Daily also published a long story about Liu Yaming in serials.
Behind the exhibition, there is another legendary story: Mr. Dale Starks, an American lawyer, traveled to Beijing in 1992. One night, he went out to the hotel for a night. Suddenly, he felt someone staring at him in the roadside window. When he looked closely, it turned out to be a real-life-sized female oil portrait. Lawyer Dell was immediately attracted by the bright eyes and wisdom of the painter. The next day he bought the painting from the gallery and met the author, Liu Yaming. In his contacts with young Chinese painters, he was deeply moved by Liu Yaming's talent and persistent artistic pursuit, so he decided to help him exhibit his paintings in the United States.
Liu Yaming is a practical and hard-working painter. He rented a villa without decoration to create a group of giant oil paintings called Wu. The studio is large and humble. It can be said that there is no comfortable place, not to mention air-conditioned TV and other pleasures. Whether in the midsummer of 30 degrees or in the winter of 10 degrees below zero, he persisted in painting here for more than ten hours every day. He was almost as willing as a religious fanatic to live a life of ascetic monk painting. These series of oil paintings with the title of "Wu" include the fascinating works of "Chengming" and "This Shore", each of which has the effect of shaking the vision and soul. It is Liu Yaming's most vigorous work in waking up the classical and impacting the modern in recent years. It also shows the pursuit of a new generation of Chinese oil painters.
The Road to Freedom to the Underworld took two years to write. It is 16 metres long and 3 metres wide. It is a magnificent and epic picture of all living beings composed of more than 180 characters. The background of the picture is gray and cloudy, which symbolizes the "disaster" of human beings, that is, the oppression of real life. On the screen, people running in different shapes represent modern people's inner agitation and hesitation, depression and anxiety. The focus of the whole picture is the first Sakyamuni on the left horizon and the peaceful white-dressed girl in the center of the picture, who foreshadows the ultimate peace of the human mind and the harmony of the world.
