China's one belt, one road and the building of a community of human destiny are invited to invite the artists from all over the world to promote the excellent culture and art of the Chinese nation and the world's best performing arts and culture, and to contemporary outstanding artists and art lovers, as well as the world's Art institutions. To build a bridge of friendship, Mr. Liu Yang, a famous Chinese portrait artist, is invited to present a splendid art ceremony for the readers.
Liu Yang, born in 1957 in Beijing. Vice chairman of the Chinese red culture Calligraphers Association, vice president of Bayi calligraphy and painting academy, and consultant of Chinese contemporary painting and calligraphy masters Association.
Mr. Liu usually wears a casual jacket with long hair and shoulders, and has a cheerful and easy-going talk. As the fourth generation portrait painter of Tiananmen Gate Tower in China, for nearly 40 years, he has been painting Chairman Mao and other great men. Liu Yang: "I have done this in my life. If I want to do it well, I must do it well.".
Known as the youngest "City Tower painter", the leader of Tiananmen Square is like a painter Liu Yang: Chairman Mao wants to paint like the red sun.
Without any training, it's hard to imagine that Liu Yang's solid painting skills are all self-taught. In 1979, Liu Yang, 22, stood out from 10 competitors and became the fourth generation of Tian'anmen Gate Tower painter. He is also the youngest of all six "City Tower painters". "No matter how much you can draw, you will be confused immediately when you face your eyes and nose as big as your face." There is no doubt that it is a difficult job to draw a huge portrait of a leader. Recalling the process of that portrait, Liu Yang said: "since July, I have been painting in a workshop surrounded by iron sheet. The indoor heat is like a steamer, but I am still full of energy..." In two months, Liu Yang finished his work, and the portrait was hung on the Tiananmen tower on the eve of the national day. Liu Yang was proud of that painting experience, but the painting process left him with lingering fear. At that time, it was a political mistake to paint poorly!
There is only one portrait of Chairman Mao in the city tower painted by Liu Yang. His other portraits of Chairman Mao have been hung in the Great Hall of the people, the Museum of Chinese history, the capital gymnasium and the Chinese people's Revolutionary Military Museum. In people's eyes, Liu Yang's work is very lofty, but in his own eyes, he is an enterprise employee, with ordinary salary, inner pride is the greatest wealth.
