Cape of Good Hope Art Gallery presents a solo exhibition by artist Wang Mo Ping. Using a sense of free composition and unusual visual angles, coupled with an emphasis on meticulous representation of light, Wang’s paintings bear strong Impressionistic techniques and characteristics. Wang’s works display his affection for Singapore’s landscape as he spends much of his time painting on site, from many hours in sunny West Coast Park to devoting much effort along the buzzing business district of Tanjong Pagar. Relying on movement as a crucial element in his artistic perception, he succeeds in translating what he sees into exceptional works imbued with artistic pose and honesty.
Wang Mo Ping has participated in many exhibitions and received numerous awards for his works such as the National Youth Water Colour Art Exhibition artistic award (First Prize). His winning artwork “Noon”, was collected by the China Artist Association. In 2001, Wang emigrated and settled in Singapore and his love for this new land grew. His first solo exhibition in Singapore took place in 2001, named “Into the Realm of Artistic Serenity”.
