First Solo Exhibition in New York of Ma Bing at Eli Klein Fine Art

NEW YORK, NY.- Eli Klein Fine Art presents the first solo exhibition in New York of Ma Bing, whose masterful paintings provide striking and nostalgic views of Beijing. In Ma Bing’s new works, a fresh approach to painting is presented by the layering of various media – including oil, acrylic, pencil, and tea – on the surface of the canvas. The interplay between subtle shifts in tone and refined line drawing that permeate the work are reminiscent of traditional Chinese ink and wash paintings. He integrates this traditional Chinese style with Western oil painting. Ma Bing’s diverse array of subjects, all painted in his distinctive style, present the artist’s fond recollections of Beijing. He is deeply inspired by the traditional architecture which he encounters
