Li kuchan (January 11, 1899 June 11, 1983), formerly known as Yingjie, changed its name to Ying, with the words of chaosan and Ligong, born in Gaotang, Shandong Province, is a modern calligrapher and painter, art educator and master of modern Chinese freehand brushwork flower and bird painting. Born in a poor family, influenced by the traditional culture of his hometown since childhood, he embarked on an artistic journey. In 1923, he took Qi Baishi as his teacher. He used to be a professor of Hangzhou art college, a professor of the Central Academy of fine arts, a director of the Chinese Artists Association, and a member of the Council of the Chinese Painting Research Institute. He is good at painting flowers, birds and eagles. In his later years, he often made large-scale screens. His representative works are Sheng he, the group of eagles, the pine and the eagle, the orchid and the bamboo, the snow and the water. In 1978, "Li kuchan painting series" was published. On June 11, 1983, Li kuchan died.
Li kuchan inherited the tradition of Chinese painting, absorbed the techniques of Shi Tao, Badashan, Yangzhou School of painting, Wu Changshuo, Qi Baishi, etc., and had characteristics in freehand painting of flowers and birds. There are bold, majestic and vivid styles, which set up a new style of freehand flower and bird painting. Li kuchan created many artistic images with his own aesthetic views and expression techniques. Li kuchan's painting of flowers and birds has some realistic elements, not an objective description of the natural image, but a concise creation. There is a simple and unsophisticated spirit in random, and a masculine spirit in natural implication. The bigger Li kuchan's painting is, the more free he can wield it. In his later years, Li kuchan's works reached the artistic level of "simplicity and complexity".
Li kuchan's painting materials are unique, often with pine, bamboo, plum, orchid, chrysanthemum, stone, lotus, Starling, cormorant and eagle as the theme painting. For example, the picture of teaching children to learn to fly depicts the young eagles who are attached to the back of eagles and want to fly. Square eye socket, axe shaped sharp mouth, emphasizing the contrast between the eagle and the young. The whole modeling of oblique triangle, the whole dynamic of upward flying. Li kuchan painted eagles are mostly "static" eagles, mostly squatting posture. For example, in the picture of pine and hawk, several Eagles stand on the top of the mountain, ready to go.
Artists never lack temperament, which is revealed from the deep soul of the breath, instantly fascinating. Art, let men charm; art, let women charm infinite; art, nourish the human soul!
First, art nourishes the heart
Art nourishes the mind and makes people feel young. Generally speaking, people who are engaged in art or real collectors of art are those who pursue purity. They are not extreme and complain. They do things just right, just like painting a picture, one more is redundant and one less is insufficient. Or, they even retain some childlike interests, like a child, not sad about the short life, only focus on the good of the moment. They put themselves in the way of heaven and pursue the unity of heaven and man, knowledge and action. Let artists have a different temperament and style!
Second, art fosters virtue
People who like or engage in art all know that learning art requires quality first, so they attach great importance to their moral cultivation. They regard art as a part of themselves, and understand life, space and time, and the meaning of existence from art. They respect the way of heaven, follow people's ethics, stand up by virtue, be modest and prudent, be polite and honest, gentle and elegant, strive for little by little, stick to the principle, and be an example to others!
Third, art health preservation
When artists create art, they have the largest amount of movement, or draw large paintings, lay paper on the ground, squat, lie down, lean up, or hang murals, lean forward and back, and so on, all of which are full body movements. At the same time of artistic creation, it achieves the goal of fitness. In addition, when you are in a bad mood, pick up the paintbrush and let go of your troubles. Therefore, there are many long-lived people who are engaged in art, such as Wu Changshuo, Qi Baishi and so on. Isn't that a clear proof?
Fourth, art nurtures talents
Those who are engaged in artistic creation or collection are all those who are just assiduous. They strive to see the shadow of the ancients or culture in every stroke. Therefore, they are diligent in learning and good at learning, and they are constantly climbing the ladder of knowledge. From the beginning that they knew nothing to gradually climb to the top of knowledge, they have paid a lot of effort, and their talents have been growing. Artists have never been the same. The artists you know last year often make a qualitative leap this year. The artists you despised last year may be impressive this year.
Fifthly, art keeps quiet
To the end of emptiness, to keep quiet, to do all things together, I see the recovery. This is the best interpretation of artists. Static, let the artist in the creation of the mind without distractions, highly concentrated, free to move, immersed in the pure state of art, forget themselves, forget time. They observe the development of all things and meditate on the growth and reincarnation of all things. Therefore, their art is at the forefront of the times and has a perspective.
Sixth, art nurtures beauty
Truth, goodness and beauty are the pursuit of artists in their whole life. The beauty that artists pursue is unique and the common beauty that the public can't say but agree with. Artists are the most appreciative people. Beauty is everywhere in their eyes. Therefore, artists are often "artistic" and tasteful. The nourishment of art to human soul is endless, which can only be truly felt when creating quietly or appreciating quietly. Only art can make the human soul elegant in an instant!
