Lin Guocheng

Lin Guocheng, born in 1979 in Shantou, China. Now he is working and living in Beijing.

Lin Guocheng’s mastery use of a humble pen to draw painstakingly detailed works, who has been inspired by both traditional aspects of Chinese ink as well as western sketching techniques. Notably, Lin draws upon his belief in the beauty of nature, and mesmerizing in their detail and hauntingly beautiful in their spiritual essence. In Lin Guocheng’s artwork, the moisture-laden atmosphere of his landscape, the blurry, misty outline of distant mountains and the textured swirling trees are a homage to the forefathers of classical Chinese landscape paintings. Instead of portraying what he sees via rigid forms and composition, he allows the lines to grow spontaneously.
