Born in the 1960s, Wang Xiaosong's work is imbued with the influence of that particular period, characterised by romanticism and critical realism. His recent works are infused with a romantic and critical-realist flavour. It is quasi-abstract work which consists of a group of Chinese characters. They are ideographs made stereo with oil paint.
His paintings contain two layers - a foreground and a background. His abilities to handle the binary opposition and the contradictory feelings aroused by his paintings can lead to illusions, on which people may pontificate, meditate even.
His work can be seen in several contemporary art museums and art fairs world wide.
