Jack Nie, Artist, loved nature and freedom, but especially loved painting when he was young boy. At that time China was in a state of horror and autocracy and he was deprived of their rights; however, he had access to art, and he always persevered in exploring art during this difficult time. As a result self-taught artist was successful in practice.
Since 1996, he has participated in more than 300 art exhibitions in the United States, many outstanding works are privately collected, most of the works are popular among young Americans. He has been persistent in exploring crystallization of art, and pursuing the ideas and colors of the works, bringing visual enjoyment to the art lovers.
Oil Painting by Jack Nie
Every year, stupendous shows are performed for the celebration of the New Year and the Spring Festival, they excite the intellect of a few hundred million audience, and won the applause of over a billion fans! Renminbi pour in like the eruption from an oil well. In contrast, the role of a painter is a miserable one. Painting is solitary work, one shuts oneself up at home, laboring alone. Even if you paint a roomful of pictures, hardly anybody will care about you, the future is bleak. What can you do but to keep painting? If a painter lives next door, you will not know at all what he is doing. No sound, no movement.
Occasionally he comes out, dressed sloppily, looking distracted. Because the painter lacks people skills, he is laughed at as “silly it”. In every neighborhood there are probably one or two painters like this. They are anonymous artists, they sign at the right corner after a painting is finished, people will not know who it is by looking at the signature. I am one of these artists.
