Xiang Weiguang Biography:
Xiang Weiguang (Chinese name: 向唯光; 1948 - ) is a contemporary American painter born in China. He graduated from the Oil Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, a college under the direct jurisdiction of the Chinese Ministry of Education. The artist has held solo and group exhibitions in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Spain, and other countries, including the Chinese Art Festival held in Munich in 1997, organized by the governments of China and Germany. His works have been collected by numerous international collectors.

Unlike several of his classmates who have established themselves in the education system and became deans of China's four top art academies, Xiang Weiguang settled in the United States and focused solely on creating art without concern for worldly affairs. Watching some of his works may bring to mind Jackson Pollock, but his creative method is even more diverse, encompassing a wide range of materials with bold techniques and a variety of styles and themes that include collage, impressionism, and abstract expressionism.

Wang Weiguang's artistic style is free and unrestrained. In addition to painting on canvas, he often creates his works on thick wooden boards. He employs various materials such as foam bricks, fabrics, iron wires, and strings on the surface of his paintings, applying thick layers of pigment or splattering it on the surface, creating a three-dimensional effect that is visually impactful. Despite being over seventy years old, he is still full of creative energy and sometimes uses rollers to violently crush the pigment directly onto the canvas. His works always convey a strong sense of vitality and personality.
