Fan Dongwang’s portrait paintings also employ a new method of ‘painting as relief sculpture’ to produce his paintings the same way as ivory carving - to use the brush to ‘carve (paint) out’ the painting’s surface, as if carving an ivory relief or low relief sculpture. Thus to bring out a sense of 3 dimensional volume on the 2 dimensional surface, a visual illusionism expressed in the traditional Chinese art.

All paintings are acrylic on canvas.
