Jan not only specializes in still life and figurative paintings, but also frequently uses the oil paint providing a sculptural element to many of his work. Classical figures are often combined with unexpected elements of daily life. Hauntingly serene images are juxtaposed with impressions resonating with energy. He thinks that the classical symbolism is just a medium that leads out the messages “the question, conflict and irony towards tradition and contemporariness “that lie behind the mask of classical formality.
Jan Peng Wang is a current member of the Ontario Society of Artists, and Signature Member of Oil Painters of America.
