    The artists

    Wen Wenwu and Wand Jinfang, husband and wife, have been living in France since 2017. The destinies of these artists from the Middle Kingdom crossed at China?s most prestigious art school, the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. For the town of Château-Thierry, they are presenting an exhibition of paintings from their respective practices, which share a poetic, sublimated view of the world around us.

    The work of Wen Wenwu, son and grandson of artists, highlights joy, happiness, love, peace and the quintessence of the world, but also sometimes expresses suffering, with an underlying call to awareness? In a style he describes as "expressionist realist", his paintings combine Eastern and Western cultural concepts with great sensitivity. His leitmotiv: to place Western morality on an equal footing with Eastern cultural heritage. His canvases - portraits, self-portraits, figures, nudes, landscapes, flowers, birds and ceremonies - are produced using a technique akin to Chinese ink, using a mixture of oil and water.

    Wang Jinfang also comes from a family of artists. She has worked extensively on the Song dynasty, creating traditional Chinese ink paintings of the highest quality. Without being imitations of the old masters, her works invite us to wander and meditate through mountains, forests and valleys, where birdsong, wind and the sound of streams seem to emerge. Her art, with its extreme meticulousness and finesse, is acclaimed by collectors the world over. In addition to calligraphy, she paints on canvas, silk, handmade paper imported from China, ceramics and furniture.

    Both artists have won numerous awards, and their work can be found in many institutional and private collections around the world.
