吾辈在线艺术课程

最初,我开始在Facebook, Instagram和微信等社交媒体上布一些内容。都是我日常生活中看到的艺术艺术会等等。遇到好的作品了好玩,附写几句介和评论评论发到博客作念。但是没有想到,后来每次遇到老朋友,或者是在线上新认识朋友,很多都是在初次面的朋友,很多都异口同声地一直在关注,并且等待着我的下一个博客。通我的博客,些朋友拓了眼界,增见识而且享受到艺术的美好。这时我才意到,有那么多朋友和他的孩子都如此渴望能看懂艺术。享受艺术的熏陶,提升自己的美修养和素


我也幸自己出生在一个艺术世家,曾生活在北京中央美学院的大院里,然后高中毕业就得到去日本留学的机会,去学习视觉传画。再加上在传统文化深厚的京都文化圈结识了众多艺术鉴赏家,收藏家,评论家,艺术史学家以及其他文化学者。并且收到他的影响和薰陶,孜孜不倦地学和研究,这样一来我就逐地有了自己对艺术认识和感受。而我后来从事的所有艺术,无从古董鉴赏艺术收藏顾问再到当代艺术评论和策展,均我感到得心手。


在我得,更有必要把对艺术认识和感受继续传的朋友以及下一代年人。仿佛是一件更有意事,当然也是我不容辞的任。经过一年多的思考和筹,我敦开意工作室,希望在个平台上把我的独一无二的艺术品推荐生活,热爱艺术的人

为什么艺术教育越来越重要?

 

随著21世纪科学技术的飞速发展和当今人类社会的不断进步,人们的生活越来越受到创新与传统价值观碰撞的影响。 AI技术的发展,逐渐改变了人类社会的依赖。就像200年前蒸汽机的发明,逐渐用机器代替了人类,引发了世界工业革命,加快了人类进步的步伐。不断适应新时代。为了在下一代生存,我们必须更加重视批判性思维和创造力的重要性。对于年轻人来说,在可预见的未来,想像力和创造力是必不可少的技能。

 

我们对艺术的认识、理解和需求,不仅是为想成为艺术家的人提供的,也是为各行各业的人提供的,包括企业家、科学家、工程师、投资者、政治家等等。我们相信创造性思维是各行各业人士不可或缺的能力。

Wagahai Online Art Course

In the beginning, it started from something little by sharing some art-related content on my social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and WeChat, on the topic of the art exhibitions and art fairs that I went to and enjoyed. I posted a few brief introductions and comments on the artworks I like. I did it was purely for joy and I saw it as a journal of my art adventure. What I didn’t expect is how popular it has become among friends and new followers online. I’m so grateful when they tell me how much they like the posts and look forward to my new blog, even the newly met friends! I’m really happy when they say that through my blogs they have broadened the horizons of their ordinary lives, their knowledge of art has increased, and most importantly they have started to have more appreciate of more the beauty of art! Not until then did I realise that there are so many friends around me who, with children, are eager to enjoy the beauty of art and refine their appreciation.

 

I feel blessed that I was born into a family of artists and spent some of my childhood in the courtyard of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. After graduating from high school, I got an opportunity to go to Japan to study Visual Communication Design and Fine Art. In addition, I met many art connoisseurs, collectors, critics, art historians, and other scholars in what is seen as the heart of traditional Japanese culture, Kyoto. Immersing myself in their influence and nurtured by them, with tireless study and research, I have gradually acquired my own understanding and feelings about art. And with all of the art activities that I engaged in later, from antique appraisal, art collection consulting to contemporary art criticism and curation, all of this made me feel empowered.

 

I would like to continue to share my the knowledge of and feelings about art with the friends around me and the next generation of young people. This seems to be my life calling for something bigger and more meaningful, moreover, it has become a vocation of mine.


After more than a year of deep thinking and preparation, we have funded a creative studio in London, Wagahai Studio, aiming to establish a platform to connect people who share in our perspective. We aim to love life more, by adding an extra touch of art in our everyday lives.

Why has art education become more and more important than ever before?

With the rapid development of science and technology in the 21st century and the continuous progress of human society nowadays, people’s lives are increasingly being impacted by the collision of innovation and traditional values. The development of AI technology has gradually changed society’s dependence on human beings. It is like the invention of the steam engine more then190 years ago, which gradually replaced humans with machines, which triggered the global industrial revolution and accelerated the pace of human progress. To continually adapt to the new era and to survive in the next generation, we must pay more attention to the importance of critical thinking and creativity. For young people, imagination and creativity will be essential skills for the foreseeable future.

A knowledge and understanding of art, and a need for art are not only for people who want to become artists, but also for people from all walks of life, including entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, investors, politicians, and so on. We believe creative thinking is an indispensable skill for people in all industries.
