Born in 1971, Wang Xingjie currently lives and works in Shenyang. Not until the age of 27 did he officially start to paint. Unlike the majority of the self-educated amateur artists, he has been keeping close contact with the academic circle and was familiar to the basic formative language of art. He opens freely to different mediums and languages, meanwhile possesses his own attitude towards the reason and pursuit of making art.
With authentic eyes and brain, he applies art mediums based on comprehensions and willing of his own. The language he has developed is straightforward and simple, which depicts what he sees from the innermost consciousness, also establishes his correlation with the world on canvas. Wang Xingjie has never pursued after any formulas that might be instantly effective, instead, he has developed a steadfast referential system deriving from the raw feelings within his heart. Rather than directly reflecting the energy in a man or an object itself, he is trying to express how the energy manifested through his consciousness.
In an atmosphere that artists are prone to pursue individual symbols and identification as well as characteristics attached to a time or a culture, Wang Xingjie has been faithful to his original pursuit while learning, experimenting and investigating. For him, the starting point of making art is neither criticism nor creativity, but discovery and free expression.
