Wang Aijun

Upon graduating from the Department of Oil Painting in Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, Wang Aijun nabbed a teaching post at the Academy in 2004. Apart from his teaching duties, he also serves as the vice director of its New Media Art School. Wang Aijun is inspired by the Buddhist wall paintings of flying goddesses, whose movements are orchestrated to cosmic motion. It is a surreal world where big boulders appear out of nowhere. Instead of focusing on the elements, Wang’s drawings blend in watercolours and minerals of different colours to show the texture of rocks in a gentle way that neutralizes its materiality. Wang Aijun’s “shape-dissolving” technique is completed by yet another “colour-dissolving” technique based on the multiple dyeing in traditional gongbi drawing, now without the technique of solid outlining and colouring, representing a new way to blend colours.
