Lin Chunxiao (林纯孝) was born in 1943 in Guangdong (China). He is now a member of the Guangdong Artists Association and a painter at the Shantou Painting Institute. Lin Chunxiao has been engaged in oil painting for over thirty years and has always followed the concept of “aesthetics only”.
His works have a distinctive personality and are rich in modernity, with delicate figures, soft and bright colours, and high artistic taste, and are well received by viewers. Lin Chunxiao’s works are free from incessant lectures and illustrations that are afraid of being unclear. The changes in form, the rhythm of the lines and the composition are constructed in exquisite modelling, retaining the viewer’s eyes with the beauty of the picture and enabling the painter and the viewer to reach an aesthetic resonance.
The themes of Chunxiao’s works are taken from the most familiar scenes of ordinary life. The elements are presented to the audience in a simple, refined and appropriate way, which makes a familiar scene shockingly fresh. This is the most essential skill of a painter. He transforms complex plots into a poem, a love song, a folk song, a nursery rhyme, an affirmation of the connotation of human nature.
