Pop-art artist Wang Zhi Wu launches his latest paintings at Art WeMe Contemporary Gallery. Wang Zhi Wu is well-known by personifying animals in paintings. Each animal has a slim shape, with a big head and a pair of bright piercing eyes. At first glance, Wang’s animals delight viewers with humor and innocent charm; however, they reflect purest happiness that left alone in our childhood.

波普艺术家王志武在吉隆坡唯美艺术画廊展出他的最新作品。王志武以人物化的动物形象而闻名。每只动物都有身型消瘦的身体,以及特别大的头部与炯炯有神的大眼睛。乍看之下,王志武的动物以幽默和看似无辜的特色受到大众喜爱。然而,这些动物们其实反映了我们在童年留下的最纯粹的快乐心。

Wang has a great passion for animals, particularly dogs. He has a pet dog and he spends lots of time to observe behaviors of his dog. He realises there is a true connection between he and his dog due to the dog’s naïve and unconditional love to him. He decides to depict animals are with a simple but genuine happiness in his paintings. Thus, he creates many scenarios that are used to seeing in human society and animals become main characters in his paintings. Not only dogs are shown in Wang’s paintings, other animals, such as dogs, cows, frogs and horses are also the inspiration of his works.

王志武对动物有很特别的感情,特别是狗。他有一只宠物狗,他花了很多时间来观察他的狗的行为。他意识到因为狗对他的天真和无条件的爱,因此他和他的狗之间产生了真正的情感连结。他决定以动物为主体,并且在他的作品中拥有一种简单但真正的幸福。因此,他创造了许多常见于人类社会中看到的场景,动物成为他绘画中的主角。王志武的画中不仅有狗,狗,牛,青蛙和马等其他动物也是他作品的灵感。

Wang’s animals have cartoon-liked shapes and they create adorable and lovely images in his paintings. Their images mix with different animals’ appearances. Every protagonist in his paintings is not simply an animal but mostly is from his imagination. Besides, all animals have big heads with big eyes, and their bodies look smaller which are not equivalent to animals’ actual body sizes. For Wang, illustrating actual outlooking of animals are not main theme in his paintings. Those animals represent a symbol of freedom, innocent or simple life. Cartoon style creates an imaginary phenomenon to look back our genuine happiness while we have had in our childhood. He attempts to express spirits beyond reality to capture life in its purest form without giving into exaggeration or excessiveness. His works of art encourages his audience to start their own journey of optimism and self-discovery.

王志武的动物有着卡通造型,在他的作品中创造出可爱而迷人的形象。画中每个主角都不只是一种动物,动物们有着混合的形象,主要来自王志武的想像力。此外,所有动物都有大头大眼睛,而且他们的身体看起来更小,不等同于动物的实际体型。对王志武来说,描绘动物的实际外型并不是他绘画的主题。那些动物代表着自由,天真或简单生活的象征。卡通风格创造了一个天马行空的想像氛围,回顾我们童年时期最单纯的快乐。他试图表现出超越现实的精神,以最纯粹的形式捕捉生活,而不会夸大或过度。他的艺术作品希望能鼓励观众展开乐观而自我探索的旅程。
