Wang Yifan, born in Hebei, has loved art since he was young. In 1986, he entered Langfang Arts and Crafts Company and began his career in inside-painting under the tutelage of Master Liu Shouben.


Snuff Bottles
Snuff bottles, also known as inside-painted bottles, are traditional handicrafts with Chinese characteristics, a glassware (the former name for glass in China), a single category due to the large number and influence, a national handicraft developed in the late Qing Dynasty, a pocket-sized artwork that sets the essence of Chinese national art.

Drawing subtle pictures inside a bottle as small as a bean is a work of genius. If people hadn't seen it with their own eyes, it would be hard to imagine that thousands of miles of rivers and mountains are hidden in this snuff bottle that is not as big as a palm.

Look at the mountains still standing tall, the pines and cypresses are still lush and green, the shrinkage of size does not affect the beauty of the Chinese painting that should be spread out in large strokes. The traditional folk artisan's wonderful brushwork draws the spirit of ink and wash painting and mountain and river pictures into this small world.

Since its production during the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty, the inside-painted snuff bottle has lasted for nearly two hundred years and was born in the capital, where it was owned by the nobles and dignitaries of the imperial palace at that time, and it is a bright pearl in the hall of traditional Chinese folk art.

After a hundred years of inheritance, the artistic expression and creation techniques of snuff bottles have been continuously improved, and Wang Yifan has successfully inherited this skill.

Wang Xisan, the master of Chinese internal painting, is a provincial master of internal painting, based on traditional Chinese painting and Western painting. He combines Chinese and Western painting techniques in one furnace, absorbs the characteristics of "Beijing School" and "Wing School" internal painting, and after painstaking efforts, innovates a technique of "internal painting oil painting through the wall", which makes a new leap in Chinese internal painting. It is characterized by fine technique, accurate modeling, elegant style, and a combination of Chinese painting colors and oil painting colors to simulate the effect of many types of paintings, especially in the creation of portrait subjects is very prominent.

Nowadays, there are fewer and fewer people who can keep on creating art, but Mr. Yifan has been doing the creation of inner painting pots for decades, and he has a deep love for traditional Chinese folk art, reflecting the charm of a contemporary artist's simple and unpretentious personality.
