Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“He likes to paint outdoors in the suburbs as a wall of ruins, which gives him new inspiration.”

Liu Xilong is an amateur artist from Heyuan, China. High school, as an art specialty, entered the key high school and began to create realistic art works incompatible with the joint examination during the second year of senior high school.

This is the artist's attempt to make mixed media with the theme of "farmers". After repeated revision of several works, it seems to find my inner feeling. Therefore, a series of black-and-white "farmers" themes were created later.

In 2011, he graduated from university and won the first prize of the painting professional group in the college students' competition of Guangdong Province, China. After graduating from the University, he did not choose to move towards the professional development of artists, but went to Shanghai to engage in the advertising industry.

The artist has found many combinations and modifications about the images of farmers, such as the look, facial features and composition of the characters.

His works painted on the original (ruins) wall, never painted white, brought new vision to the wall, and won high praise from the community and social media. For example, Guangdong Provincial TV Zhujiang satellite TV, municipal daily TV, and learning power app, with a broadcast volume of up to 15.77 million, and ranked among the top ten hot spots in the city.

“In my spare time, I didn't forget to create as a part of my daily life.”

However, because the walls of the ruins are rarely seen in the urban area, he wanted to move the vision of the ruins to cloth painting. That is, he later learned from the famous artist Xie Taiwei (Chairman of China Heyuan Art Association and the first winner of the national exhibition in the city) to learn comprehensive material painting, with an open mind to learn the nature of materials from 0 and how to make materials on cloth.

“I also learned about many international art masters, such as German contemporary artists: Ansem Kiefer / Gerhard Richter. Gerhard Richter said: I want to imitate a picture, but I want to make a picture.”

It has influenced his creation of black-and-white image series, so his works give the masses a sense of black-and-white photos, which is what he himself said. I like this old feeling, even black-and-white.
