Self-introduction of Zhu Nong an artist from China
I was born in a small town called Jangyin at the South bank of the Yangtsi River, famous of its traditional Chinese ink painting; Ni Yunlin is one of its best examples which had a huge influence on the later artists. Such as, the eight eccentrics of Yangzhou, Zhu Da, Zheng Banqiao, Jin Nong. They rebuked the feudal dynasties for its pedantry and obstinacy.
And I was grown up seeing these heretical styles of art.
Although I was amazed of those master pieces and always being interested in drawing, I really stared learning drawing at 18. I studied at Changshu Institution College, I worked as typographer, interior designer and advertisement designer. And I never stopped drawing since then. Start at my 40s I decided to travel around the world and explore museums and galleries. I spent 2years in UK, France, Italy and Spain.
My earlier works were oil paintings, I’ve also tried sculpture. Started at 2013 I began to use ink to express myself on paper. I found the random patterns that occurs on paper when ink drop on it were matching my ideal thinking. It’s exactly the stage of my expressions. I use this old language to describe the modern world I live in.
Recently in my drawings, I try to separate the image with the real object, I put the image into a chaotic background, I reconstruct the image in a different reality on my paper.
I think as much as I draw, I try hard to think in different possible ways, I care about the world that I live in and people around. I respect artists who can offer their feelings to humanity, just like Goya and Francis Bacon always carrying pity for those who were suffering. I want to be an artist like this.
