Milan, Italy, April 22, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Chinese contemporary artist Fu Wenjun was awarded the International Prize Tiepolo – Arte Milano on 21st April 2016 at Clerici Palace of Milan, office of International Politics Studies Institute (ISPI). Josè Van Roy Dalì, painter and heir of Salvatore Dalì and Gala was present as invited guest.
Successful from the beginning of his career, Tiepolo has been described by English art historian, former National Gallery director Michael Levey as "the greatest decorative painter of eighteenth-century Europe, as well as its most able craftsman." Beside of the work The Madonna of Mount Carmel collected at the Pinotace di Brera of Milan, Clerici Palace conserves another his important work in Milan Chariot of the Sun.
Tiepolo is one of the most outstanding artistic creative artist in the eighteen century. His art celebrates the imagination by transposing the world of ancient history and myth, the scriptures, and sacred legends into a grandiose, even theatrical language. International Prize Tiepolo – Arte Milano commemorate his greatness in the art history, at the same time award the international contemporary artist for their high art value and prominent art creativity at the present era.
Fu Wenjun was award for his “significant artistic commitment”. The artist keeps exploring his creation on conceptual photography, creating a unique artistic language to express himself. His works come into the notice of the international art world. The Italian art critic talked about his work “First step of analysis, the winning attempt to examine different cultures and eras. From the stylist inspiration drawn by a typical figuration of some Chinese dynasties, like the Song and the Tang dynasties, to more modern and photographic depictions, to sculptures which remind some of many western churches. The Master’s artworks are dances intersecting strong eras of wars and warriors, superimposed by cutting contemporary portraits. In this sense, every image is a fundamental part of the synopsis. The Great Master, Fu Wenjun, always talks about history of art; it’s not a means, but the main goal. He therefore analyses some aspects which are meant to express a timeless concept. In this way, the expression of every artwork becomes a thesis with no possibility of anti-thesis, full of proofs which we find again many times in history, western and oriental, to remember that history is repeating itself and that the mankind as a whole has similarities beyond geo-cultural position.”
After the significant award in his career, Fu Wenjun is invited to participated at Biennale Riviera del Brenta, which will take place at Mira, Venice from 23rd April. His conceptual photography work Gone with the Wind is selected to exhibit at the important art event of Venice in 2016.
