I occasionally get updates from something called “Informed Collector.” They hold a competition called The Bold Brush Painting Competition. This week I was turned on to a Chinese artist born in 1959 in Jilin Province, called Fengshi Jin. He’s exhibited all over the world.
The painting of Keith Richards has beautiful free-flowing strokes; he seems to capture the essence and all the hard years put on the septuagenarian rocker.
I was captivated by his style. It is very raw and very alla prima which means at first attempt. Each stroke he puts down, he puts down with confidence, leaves it there, and moves on. I’m captivated by this style.
I love the result. For those of us who like to watch paint dry, you can visit Fengshi Jin’s YouTube channel where you can watch him paint. Personally, I love it.
