  • Young Painter Launched New Watercolor Painting to Show the “Xuhui Story”

    Recently, Shanghai’s outstanding youth painter Luo Lingjun’s latest album Xuhui Story appeared in the “National New Book Launch Hall” of Shanghai Bookmall Fuzhou Road Store, to meet the readers. This 1980s youth painter walked away one of five excellent prizes, with his watercolor and gouache painting Xujiahui, in the Shanghai’s top art award of Magnolia Award not long ago. As a native painter in Shanghai, Luo Lingjun is apt at depicting the city from his own perspective, passionate and rational. These paintings convey both vicissitudes of life and warmth, like an old man telling the past story. Luo Lingjun told Youth Daily reporter that since photography emerged, the painters should have new pursuit, to paint their own things, injecting their own feelings, rather than simply pursue similarity of shape. This is the difference between painting and photo. For the Xuhui Story, Shanghai’s famous female writer Xi Zhen said, “Luo Lingjun is painting Shanghai, with deep feelings for the mother city, and thus the paintings are warm, affectionate and extremely impressive. In his paintings, there are dusty times and misty history, which feels like both déjà vu and half a world away, to arouse our common memory for the city.”(Source: Youth Daily)
