According to the 2019 academic activity plan of the School of Fine Arts and Design, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design held a lecture of "Easy Power-Dong Baochen Painting Learning and Creation Experience" on the afternoon of November 13th. Teachers came to the scene.
Associate Professor Dong Baochen uses his experience in oil painting creation and study in 31 years as a starting point. He graduated from school in 1988 and taught at Harvard University in 1989. From 1997 to 1999 and from 2002 to 2005 At the Central University for Nationalities and the Central Academy of Fine Arts, he studied undergraduate and doctoral courses in oil painting with Chinese oil painting masters Jin Shangyi, Zhan Jianjun, Zhu Naizheng, Zhong Han, Yuan Yunsheng, Liu Bingjiang, etc. Then, in 2011, he was admitted to Tsinghua University as a graduate student, and he was taught by Mr. Zheng Yi, etc., to pursue his professional growth experience in master degree in oil painting art.
Explaining his ideas on academic creation, he believes that there are several aspects to be engaged in artistic creation and teaching: 1. a solid foundation in painting, 2. a contemporary international perspective, 3. a practice of sincere and pragmatic, which impresses himself on a large number of works. Then he specifically explained the origin, vision, composition, academic pursuit and completion of his work "Distance", which was selected by the Chinese Ministry of Culture and Tourism to celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China this year. In the process and ideas, he used a diligent and optimistic northern farmer standing on the land of his hometown to look at the oil paintings of people in the distance, which truly reflects the lives of Chinese farmers today, and awakens more people to pay attention to their living conditions. At the same time, it also shows that an artist should take responsibility for representing the society. Finally, he analyzed in detail the outstanding works he has won in domestic exhibitions in recent years, so that students can understand the charm of artistic creation from the most intuitive perspective. The lively lectures and lively discussions aroused students' desire for new knowledge, broadened their horizons, and provided a new way of thinking for painting students in future artistic creation. This lecture full of positive energy is of positive significance to the development of our college's painting profession.
