Wu Jian Portrait

The paintings of Wu Jian entice the viewer with their tenderness and attention to detail and motion.Clearly evident is the artist's ability to focus on subtle events that often pass unnoticed. Wu Jian examines these moments with a focus so profound as to transcend their physical boundaries. His well trained eye Combined with his masterful technique capture only what is essential.  Each brushstroke embodies volume, color, texture, and the most ephemeral of all qualities, the human spirit. Wu Jian imbues his canvases with a rich and delicate life of their own. Whether the subject be a simply placed floral Still life or a classically poised ballerina, the artist's mature and poetic vision radiates from the canvas.

His technique: a unique blending of Classical, Realist and Impressionist styles which utilizes An ultra smooth canvas as its base and builds the surface upward in a symphony of blended Hues and gradients of light and color.
