Nude Charcoal Drawings by Zhaoming Wu
China

Photograph of  artist Zhaoming WuZhaoming Wu is a Chinese-born painter.  He grew up in Guangzhou City, China, received his BFA from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, and his MFA from the prestigious Academy of Art University, the nation’s largest private art and design university in San Francisco, California.

Wu grew up during the Cultural Revolution.  At the age of 8 the government closed the schools and Wu had to leave.  He spent his days copying comic books and studying Chinese brush painting from a book.  When he was 12, his mother, a doctor, recognizing his talent as a painter, asked a professor at Guangzhou Academy to train her son.

Both an artist and a teacher, Wu served as a professor of painting at Guangzhou Academy.  He currently teaches painting at the Academy of Art University.

Wu focuses on figurative work, using live models, mainly women draped in cloth, although his repertoire includes landscapes and portraits.  The curves of the body and folds in cloth remind Wu of nature, such as mountains, water, and sunrise and set.  His style is impressionistic and moody.

“Zhaoming Wu is one of those artists, whose knowledge and talents merge into a convoluted path from the Nineteenth Century Masters down to us, today. He is currently one of the most valued faculty members of the San Francisco Academy of Art, and he instructs and mentors artists in the graduate program in representative painting and drawing.”
