Paintings by Nan Xu
I was born in China. I love science and art at the same time.
Three years ago I decided to become a professional artist. Now I work in New York as a professional artist.
New York is a magical place, I met a lot of artists here and I got inspired by them. Also, the museums in New York always there to give me numerous resource to learn. I am interested in the old master style of painting. I try to figure out their techniques. I find it hard to make a consistent process of painting like the old masters do.
I would like to learn more about the process and sequence of every step to finish an old master style painting. I think the Old Master Academy is a perfect place for an artist like me who want to learn the old master techniques.
Also, the online resource is really convenient for everyone who doesn’t have time to go to school.
The reason I want to win the Old Masters Academy is I think it is a good opportunity for me to improve my technique and also I would like to continue this style of painting and inspire more people to learn from the old masters.
I hope people can vote for me because I am an artist who painted in traditional style would really apply the knowledge I got here into practice and encourage more people to continue the old masters’ good traditions.
