Figurative Paintings by Liu Nan
Chinese master of oriental brush painting and calligraphy, Liu Nan has created a series of life-sized figurative oil paintings that reflect on his experiences working on the Florida A & M University campus in Tallahassee, Florida. Nan draws inspiration for his works from his subjects’ assertion of self and individuality, which are visually expressed through bold clothing and varied accessories. He focuses on portraying his observations of students’ connectivity within their campus lives; many of his figures are using their cellphones or other technology devices in lieu of connecting interpersonally with the other students in their surroundings. Liu Nan’s artwork have been exhibited and collected across the United states among public institutions, museums, galleries, and private patrons.
