Wang Shun, also known as Xiaoshi, contemporary Chinese calligrapher and brush painting artist.
Wang was born in 1950 in Liaoning, China. He has enjoyed drawing since his childhood, and trying to find the essence of Chinese calligraphy and brush painting for decades. In his early youth, Wang was sent to the countryside to engage in agricultural production like other 16 million participants in the "Up to the Mountains and Down to the Countryside Movement" policy. In 1971, Wang returned to Shenyang and became a policeman. In the same year, he started learning calligraphy and brush painting on his own. For decades, he has been spending most of his spare time practicing and studying different features and motifs from famous masters’ works.
In 2002, Wang retried from the police, focused on his artistic career and become a professional calligrapher and brush painter. He traveled to many famous mountains and rivers around China and sketched a lot from nature, finally he formed his own unique personal style and created many landscape paintings combining both deep tradition and the flavor of new times. Based on his skillful ink-brush techniques and deep intentions, his artworks expressed his careful observations of life and the nature. Each of his artworks fully displayed his strong artistic foundation and presentation techniques. Especially in dry-ink landscape painting (also called Jiaomo Shanshui), Wang shows his talent to the world. People have commented on the vitality of his work.
His work has been shown in many national art exhibitions and is valued by collectors from all over world.
