Lei Tang
Painting, Cello, Base, Music, Colorful by Chinese American Artist




The work of Lei Tang can be best described as an exploration into the style of abstract painting. Using acrylic paints, Tang incorporates bold colors into a composition of movement and uses the entire canvas to engulf the viewer into the energy of his composition. This original work is signed lower right. Size is unframed on stretcher board, gallery wrapped and ready to hang. Well versed in a variety of painting styles, Tang has chosen to feature works that seamlessly transition between abstract and figurative by combining the Western style of Fauvism and the Eastern style of Chinese calligraphy. He exhibits movement and rhythm created by a composition of dots, lines and space that all come together naturally onto the canvas, like a watershed emptying into an ocean to form once source. With different colors and lines covering the canvas, it seems complex, yet like a symphony, is full of ordering of levels of sense. The colors collide to form a distinct rhythm of visual perception. Lei Tang completed his undergraduate work at the Central Institute of Art and Crafts, Beijing, China. It was there that he was trained and mentored by Wu Guanzhong (吳冠中, 1919–2010) one of the best-known contemporary painters of Chinese origin and is widely considered to be the founder of modern Chinese painting. Later he and his young family moved to the United States where he received his Masters of Fine Art at the US International University, San Diego, CA. Well recognized for his museum and gallery exhibitions in Beijing China, Tang continues his work as a full-time artist living and working in California.
