  Wang Qijun is an artist of significant accomplishments both in fine
arts and calligraphy. As for calligraphy, his running script sharply
varies based on traditional styles, encompassing both the relaxation of
Zhang Xu (675-750) and the wildness of Huai Su (725-785) and implying
exceedingly aesthetic and delightful beauty. It takes deep roots in his
learning from the model of calligraphy since his childhood which
constituted the fundamental elements of his calligraphy. The composition
of his running script is renowned for lively art with each character
featuring varying sizes, well-proportioned line spacing,
perfectly-arranged density, appropriate intensity and most importantly
tremendous individualities.

inscription written on Chinese silk in the Han Dynasty. Traditional
models of calligraphy for clerical script primarily source from Zhang
Qian Inscription (inscribed in 186) and Cao Quan Inscription (inscribed
in 185). Nonetheless Han Dynasty wooden tablets and silk were
successively unearthed after the Cultural Revolution, which presented
the modern people the opportunity to witness the writing style in the
Han Dynasty. The clerical script of Wang Qijun makes great efforts to
pursue the unsophisticated structure and unconventional pattern,
radically averting from the common besetting shortages of stiffness and
characterizing vivaciousness, efficiency, creativeness and
uncomplicatedness. The running style and the clerical style compose the
two major constituents of his calligraphy.

  Wang Qijun worked in the Institute of Traditional Chinese Painting
in his early years, which helped his traditional Chinese paintings
demonstrate the essentials of his writings and paintings. He has painted
numerous picture-story books, so his traditional Chinese paintings
manifestly show the foundation of his technique for character modeling
and line presentation. He highly praises the advocacy to take
calligraphy as the basis of painting. The strokes and the lively spirit
and charm of his traditional Chinese paintings are inherent and the
scholarly disposition rests at the core of his paintings.

  The techniques of the art of composition and lines function merely
as the external form of his traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy
with his literary cultivation deeply hidden in his art. We are easily
touched by the themes of his paintings when we enjoy this album. The
themes are mostly sourced from literary quotations of philosophy, humor,
scoff, self-mockery or implication. Watching his paintings is just like
nothing but reading prose. Watching the clouds by the window and
listening to the rain on the bed. The watchers will view the world in
contemplation and taste the life in detail together with the painter.

  The oil paintings in this album still follow the true-life style,
inheriting the European neo-classicistic painting style and the USSR
realistic presentation style. His oil paintings are principally themed
on figures and the scenery in the Yangtze River Delta. In terms of
figures, the album collects several works of Wang Qijun when he
participated in the activity Image Talk about Khampa (painting and
creating from life in the Tibetan area in Sichuan) held by the artists
of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, such as Learning the Tibetan
Language and Seasons Greetings etc. These works demonstrate the scenes
in todays real life, for instance, the joyful facial expressions of an
old Tibetan woman during her talking with her child far away over the
mobile phone and the scene of pre-school children and stay-at-home women
learning to read and write in standard Tibetan in class, vivifying the
new life of the people of western Sichuan and Tibet. Yangtze River Delta
stands as the constant theme of the creation of Wang Qijun, which is
closely related with his academic background of doctoral degree in
Architectural History and Theory of the School of Architecture of
Tsinghua University. As an expert in research on traditional Chinese
residence, he has once won the Grand Prize of Book in Chinese mainland
and Taiwan with his academic works on dwellings which were translated
and published in German, French, Japanese and English and his English
works Chinese Architecture has been published in New York. Slowly
Rowing, the works on the first page of Wang Qijun, Famous Chinese
Painter Volume 2, created in 2013, a typical oil painting depicting the
Yangtze River Delta representing his latest works, was auctioned at the
Poly Auction Fair in the autumn of 2013.
