Fangmin’s artistic creation is extensive, his art-making is reactionary to current international events and a reflection on social issues. In his landscape paintings, the Australian countryside, farms and villages are often the source of inspiration for his works. He hopes that his landscape paintings are more than a simple reproduction of nature – they should be works with passion and personality, and bring a new perspective to the viewer. Adopting a style that blends realism with expressionism, he favors oils, acrylics and mixed mediums. His works have been widely collected, both privately and public, notably by the NSW Nepean Public Hospital, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and Australian National Gallery.
