Hao Shiming

About Cursive Script in Tang Dynasty Style Series

Graduated from the traditional painting department of the Tianjin Fine Arts academy in 2000, Hao Shiming spends the next few years perfecting his technique and ridding the canvas from unnecessary flourishes, limiting the materials used and moving away from figuration. Hao Shiming thus develops a very unique style, systematically doubling the strokes and filling the frame with numerous layers of characters, like Cursive Script in Tang Dynasty Style Series. The resulting works are sophisticated and minimalist. His approach is tinted by several Chinese philosophies, by an interest in Buddhism and by a reflexion on ephemerality and renewal.
