Comment from Fangzhou Jia:
Painter from Chifeng, south of Great Wall, Zhonglin Wang is established in local features and is fond of landscape scenery and cultural source of his hometown. Chifeng is cradleland of Hongshan culture as well as the location of Liaoshangjing, which has profound cultural background. His landscape paintings bring us to a modest, peaceful and remote world, a world where you can not only feel the particular Mongolia plateau features in vision but also breathe the purity of the ancient. For the urbanite living in turbid and noisy cement forest, paintings of Wang Zhonglin are undoubtedly a Pure Land.

Quoted by Zhongwei Zhang, art critic and chief editor of Chinese Paintings:
First of all, the colors of oil paintings of Zhonglin Wang are steady and simple, from which we can know that the painter has gone through years of professional training. I like academism works and I like his too. Nowadays many people are beginning to hate talking about the word ACADEMISM, but in my opinion, anything without groundwork is as empty and vain mirage, never lasting for long. Academism has its own advantage that it helps every learner here avoid more needless course. It’s not saying that academism hasn’t got its own characteristics, such as paintings of Wang Zhonglin which have its own painting language and something of his own. I always believe that all works with own features and inheritances are all good ones.
Next, paintings of Wang have got a state where memory of space, solidification of time and materialization of thoughts exist. I love the interlacement of dream and reality in the paintings. Whatever landscape or scenery in his paintings bring sudden feeling to me. As soon as a painting of a painter has spiritual language and communicates it to the viewer, then his work is a successful work.
Surely, works of painter Zhonglin Wang is never part of some current popular trend, let alone to emphasize in large-scale or visual impact, or to show upset thoughts and moods. What his advantage is that his works represent peaceful pattern and the spiritual world in his works is clear water in the current noisy city environment.
Works of painter Zhonglin Wang are for the one who really knows the painting. I like his works.
