About Ning Li

I am a Chinese traditional painting artist living and working in China. I have one sister named yaya living in USA. Yaya will help me to sell my arts. So all the paintings will mail from USA.
I was born and grew up in Wuhan Hubei where located central of China. It is a very beautiful city.
I love art since I was 5 years old.

I love art since I was 5 years old. I drawed every where, floor, wall and anything I can draw, so mom send me to painting classes to study after school for 12 years. At the age I was 18 years old after work I started to self-teach in my bedroom which window face the Hang River, it gave me a lot of passion and natural views to create my painting. Follow the time, painting become my habit and it take wing to fly. I found I especially like Chinese Freehand style- Shui-mo (水墨) loosely termed watercolour or brush painting. The Chinese character "mo" means ink and "shui" means water. This style is also referred to as "xie yi" (写意)or freehand style. I pained people, plants, animals, buddhas etc. Color levers chosen is the key in my painting, it give me passions when I create. Every painting at least have 5 levels to show near and far, dark and light, peace or happy etc. Painting can express my feelings and mood. The ink hair brush is singing on the papers.
I choose hand-made rice paper and mineral pigments to paint, because it is nature and color won’t fade-away at least 100 years.


I am a member at Wuhan Artists Association.
A member at Wuhan Qing Chuan Painting and Calligraphy Association.
