The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China put forward: “Cultural self-confidence.” The manifesto of this era also points out that culture is the soul of a country and a nation. Prosperity of culture means prosperity of the country, and a strong culture means a strong nation. Without a high degree of cultural confidence and cultural prosperity, there would be no great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Culture is the backbone and soul of a nation. It creates the soul and character of a country and a nation. A nation can exist in the world only if it has cultural self-confidence. Only when the people have faith can the country have strength and the nation have hope. Cultural self-confidence is the most important factor contributing to these goals.

The snow floats on the jade top with silver peak, high clouds and fantastic dragon. – Wei Sidong, a famous painter

Snow-capped mountains in western China are a natural landscape that makes people yearn for awe, and they are also the artistic palace of the famous contemporary painter Wei Sidong. He created a new realm of painting snow-capped mountains with his original artistic form, and he is an active contributor to the painting system of Chinese ink snow-capped mountains.

After thousands of years’ inheritance, Chinese landscape painting has formed two schools of Nanzong and Beipai. The landscape of Beipai is extremely solemn and the landscape of Nanzong is very flourishing. He uses artistic techniques to express the gap of snow-capped mountains which are independent of Nanzong and Beipai, and takes snow-capped mountains as the creation object. After decades of exploration and accumulation, he has achieved great success. His aesthetic accomplishment and humanistic accumulation have produced a unique aesthetic observation perspective, which can render the solemn holiness of snow-capped mountains with traditional ink painting. His Zen style is well-versed in painting and subtle. This magical and vigorous painting art of snow-capped mountains expressed in Chinese painting can be recorded as a road sign for the creation of painting history.

Mr. Wei Sidong attaches great importance to the practice of traditional painting theory which derives from the heart in external creation, and gradually precipitates visual experience into spiritual and personalized spiritual genes by observing and sketching the snow-capped mountains. Therefore, the snow-capped mountains can interact effectively with his telepathy, and it is the edification of his inner self-cultivation. Hence, by observing the grandeur of snow-capped mountains, adding freehand brushwork spirit, expressing the vastness of the holy snow-capped mountains with strong artistic techniques, and injecting tenacious vitality, every painting of snow-capped mountains is not rigid, and it is a practice of wandering the sacred land.

He dedicated the traditional essence of Chinese ink painting to the world through the shaping of snow-capped mountains, which made all people suddenly discover that there are snow-capped mountains painting besides the Nanzong and Beipai schools of Chinese traditional landscapes. They synthesize the new wonders of landscape culture. Facing the snow-capped mountains, he is not only a painter with exquisite pen and ink, but also an ideologist who can talk with nature. He focused on listening to the rhythm of the snowy valley, and let his thoughts keep pace with the rhythm. Describe solitude in grandeur, and think magnificently in solitude. His artistic modeling is exquisite, and the combination of light, shadow, block and surface makes Chinese painting have a new and colorful way of expression besides line modeling. He is gifted with pen and ink, clever and excellent. After shaping from multiple angles, multiple elements and multiple forms, the snow-capped mountains are finally naturalized as the right way of vivid landscapes in interactive rendering!

The snow floats on the jade top with silver peak, high clouds and fantastic dragon. He changed the traditional technique, and through the quick presentation of his brushwork, he created that steel strikes iron and cast general snow-capped mountains. Thick lines and thin lines can be flexibly moved, with both virtual and real, hidden and present, black and white, snow and rock, and silver peaks look like dragons in dreams, making silver peaks magnificent and masculine and sublime against the backdrop of light and shadow. No matter the composition or shape, we are actively highlighting the sense of volume and three-dimensional sense of snow-capped mountains. After intervening in the light and shadow, shaping and expressing the snow and beauty under the light is obviously the creative wit after the accurate certification of snow-capped mountains. The brushwork, light and shadow, ink and green reflect each other, which makes the new principle of snow mountain creation well-founded and colorful, and is naturally brilliant! His snow-capped mountains paintings are unique in technique and spirit, which are different and extraordinary!
