The Kinetic Art Of Dao Caoan

Dao Caoan's art hit the spot for me, incorporating my a truly energetic rendering style reliant on a looser brush stroke style. Letting the strokes shine through implies a sense of movement or action, as well as carrying an emotional aspect typically absent in tightly rendered illustration work.

This school of thought brings to mind the work of Ashley Wood, who's work seems to move while standing still thanks to an expert application of this semi-impressionist technique. In my personal opinion, over rendering can easily kill any emotional weight a painting can carry, which is why you might feel that some of this artists 'tighter' works don't seem quite as successful as his looser pieces. Which school of thought do you belong to? Check out more of Dao Caoan's kinetic paintings after the break!
