BIOGRAPHY

WANG MO PING 王模平 

China | 1957

Using a sense of free composition and unusual visual angles, coupled with an emphasis on meticulous representation of light, Wang Mo Ping’s paintings bear strong Impressionistic techniques and characteristics. Wang’s works showcases 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.

As an acclaimed artist, Wang participated in numerous exhibitions and received several accolades in the process 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. Various artworks have been collected by local and oversea‘s galleries and collectors.
