Cape of Good Hope Art Gallery presents an exhibition by artist Wang Mo Ping. Wang’s paintings bear strong Impressionistic techniques and characteristics. He uses bright colors, distinctive brush strokes, transient effects of sunlight and unique compositions to express a “Nanyang Sensation”.
Wang Mo Ping was born in China in 1957 and migrated to Singapore in 2001, where his love for this new land grew. His 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 was an Associate Professor at the Hubei Academy of Fine Arts from 1995 – 2003 and a lecturer at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) from 2002 – 2006. He 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. His first solo exhibition in Singapore took place in 2001, titled “Into the Realm of Artistic Serenity”.
