Hand Crafted Corals By Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is a highly skilled and talented artist who has created a unique form of art using hand-sculpted wood and oil paints. Her faux coral sculptures are so realistic that they are often mistaken for real coral. The texture, watery tone, colors, and charm of her sculptures are breathtaking and truly unique.

In 2008, Dr. Wang’s artworks were exhibited in the Gold Room at the United States Capitol, where her talents were recognized by the United States Congress. She was officially recognized as “a great artist and sculptor” for her outstanding accomplishments and contributions to cultural exchange between the East and the West.

Coral reefs are one of nature’s most impressive creations, often referred to as the “rainforests of the sea.” They are massive structures made of limestone deposited by coral polyps. Dr. Wang’s sculptures not only capture the beauty of coral reefs but also showcase her own artistic talents. Her work truly is a testament to the power of human creativity and imagination.

Parched Ancient Coral

This piece was hand-sculpted and painted in oil colors by Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang. Its shape and colors are even more genuine-looking and beautiful than those of real coral from the bottom of the sea or parched islands. When touching this sculpture, it tangibly feels like coral that has been eroded through immersion in water for millions of years. One cannot help but marvel at how such coral texture is created by Prof. Wang. Corals of such kind are difficult to find. Its appeal is further enhanced by the matching hand-sculpted vase called Emerald Green Fine Jade. The set has an air of elegance and refinement, surpassing the beauty of natural coral.

Sheep Tallow Dew

Pink, moist-looking, and with an understated luster, this faux coral seems as sleek as sheep tallow jade. It conveys a sense of morning dew that is deeply moving. Its wonder, colors, lustrous beauty, overall quality, and artistic flair unite to form a precious sculpture captivating in both spirit and appearance. Combined with a hand-sculpted, delightful, elegant matching vase of milky white faux jade, it becomes a doubly charming masterpiece. When a special exhibition of the art of Yuhua Shouzhi Wang was held at the United States Capitol, it was stated in the Congressional Record that her wood-based faux coral and cobblestones that she hand-sculpted and painted with oil colors “have become treasures of the world.”

Hanging Coral

This attractively hanging coral is as clean as white jade. After it was sculpted from wood material, it was painted with oil colors and glazed. It conveys a sense of moistness and distinctive texture stemming from its natural-looking shape, hues, and luster. It is sleek yet true to life as if it were real coral. All who view it will enjoy its purity, elegance, and comforting air. Combined with the matching vase called “Cai Yi Tao,” this faux coral appears even more beautiful, attractive, and elegant than real ones in nature. This piece was on view in a dedicated exhibition of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang at the United States Capitol in 2008.

Sea Palace Monarch

This gigantic coral you now see has been named “Sea Palace Monarch.” Presumably, your first feeling was that of surprise. Is it a genuine coral? Does such large coral exist in the world? If it is not a genuine coral, then why do its luster, texture, and appearance look so real and natural? From the bottom of your heart, you would happily accept it as genuine coral because it is truly so beautiful, so aesthetically pleasing. How beautiful your living room would be if it contained this sculpture! Nonetheless, reason and knowledge tell you that this world could not possibly have genuine coral so huge and so gorgeous. Indeed, even if you searched every corner of every coral reef in the oceans of the earth, you would still not find coral of such beauty and size. Its name, “Sea Palace Monarch,” means that it is the sovereign of the seas since it is the largest treasure in all the oceans. However, such colossal and splendid coral cannot be found in real oceans because it simply does not exist in this world.

Each of these three faux coral sculptures has its own distinct allure and shades of color. The aged appearance of the mouse-fur-pattern faux coral gives it the particularly strong charm of an ancient fossil from the deep sea. However, the green faux coral, which seems permeable to light, looks as if it was taken from the waters near Malaysia and Indonesia. It was painted in vivid watercolors and conveys sublime elegance. Its delightful spring green expresses purity and freshness. The yellow faux coral resembling fine jade reveals an inner warmth that would certainly be enjoyable to the touch. Each of these three works is an embodiment of talent in sculpting and painting.

With unparalleled works of art such as this, it is no wonder the artistic accomplishments of Yuhua Shouzhi Wang were recognized as “treasures of the world.” Those amazing beautiful treasures are in the permanent exhibition at The International Art Museum of America  in downtown San Francisco. Admission of the museum is free.

Hand Painted Cobblestones

Hand Painted Cobblestones

If you’re a fan of cobblestone streets and the charming, rustic aesthetic they bring to a neighborhood, you’ll love these hand painted cobblestones created by Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang. These cobblestones were painstakingly hand-sculpted from a light-weight material and then completed with fine, dedicated brushwork by the artist.

Although they may look like real cobblestones at first glance, these pieces are actually more beautiful than the real thing. They are precious works of art, not actual cobblestones. Upon closer examination, it is clear that the texture and color tones of these faux cobblestones are just as realistic as the real ones.

Professor Wang has spent many years sculpting these cobblestones from a light-weight material, and has then meticulously completed them with her fine brushwork. The result is a set of cobblestones that are not only beautiful, but also have the same texture and color tones as real ones. It’s hard to believe that these cobblestones are not the real thing when you look at them.

In The International Art Museum of America  permanent exhibition, has a set of seventy seven these cobblestones in total. These cobblestones are more than just a pretty facade. They are truly works of art, and a testament to the dedication and talent of Professor Wang. Every pebble she creates is unique, with its own shape, texture, color, and degree of weathering and aging. And with each pebble being an independent fine brushwork painting, it’s clear to see the level of detail and craftsmanship that goes into each one.

In year 2019, New York Academy of Art has certified that Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is the international first-class artist in the world, who is ranked at the same level as Cezanne, Gaugain, Monet, and Van Gogh.

If you have the opportunity to see Professor Wang’s hand painted cobblestones in person, I highly recommend it. They are a sight to behold and a true work of art. You’ll be amazed at the level of detail and craftsmanship that has gone into creating these precious pieces. So don’t miss the chance to see these hand painted cobblestones at The International Art Museum of America  in downtown San Francisco. Admission of the museum is free.

Treasure Room in The International Art Museum of America

Treasure Room in The International Art Museum of America

Last Sunday, I was so blessed to have a chance to visit the treasure room in The International Art Museum of America. The room only open four times a year. Three big locks fully close the door. Three persons open locks at the same time. One museum staff accompanied me inside the room, introducing each artworks, and answering my questions. There are four pieces of extremely beautiful splendid Yun Sculptures inside the room.

From the introduction, I learned that Yun Sculpture is an art form created by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. It is exquisite and mysterious, their beauty is astonishing and spellbinding, and structures are both exquisitely fine and sophisticated, with unanticipated variations. Unprecedented in history, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s Yun sculptures are the first form of art that cannot be replicated, regardless of the method used.

The first one I saw is called Holy Purity. Its color is soft and lustrous, like thin white silk. It looks as pure and noble as jade or ice, has an elegant hanging style, and is completely free of any flaw. This artwork, which is pleasing to the eye and comforting to the mind, fully deserves that name it was given, for it indeed possesses the qualities of holiness, purity, elegance, refinement, and white splendor.

Holy Purity

When look at different angles, I can see various remarkable sights, and light auspicious mist. I truly experienced a carefree and peaceful feeling that is difficult to describe. I felt my heart and soul are purified by this noble object. The pictures here are too dark, the whole sculpture is totally milky white.

Mystery of Lovely Colors

The second piece is called Mystery of Lovely Colors. Just like its name, it is a very vibrant and colorful artwork.

Mystery of Lovely Colors is a big Yun sculpture. Its structure and overall arrangement can only be described as “endlessly varied” and “unfathomably mysterious.” Phrases such as “swirling unusual colors,” “a mixture of emptiness and substance,” and “too beautiful to be absorbed all at once” are used to describe its grandeur, beauty, and elegance. When this exquisite sculpture is viewed from different angles, one can see various wonderful and fascinating sights that seem to be constantly changing.

The museum guide told me : “When this Yun sculpture was displayed in the Gold Room of the United States Capitol and at the Organization of American States, experts and scholars viewed it with admiration, praising it with words such as, “a gift from God to mankind,” “a treasure from a Buddha-land,” “captivatingly beautiful,’ and even “since the appearance of Yun sculptures, all treasures in this human world have become like stars in the sky that pale against a resplendent moon.”

Mysterious Mist Inside A Stone

Inside a small rome, there are two very special Yun sculpture pieces called Mysterious Mist in a Stone. One can see that mist is permanently sculpted in it like a miracle.

White jade-like gauze hangs inside a stone
Unmatched sculpting produces emotion amid the mist
Without words, a rare melody plays inside the cave
Such heavenly scenery is difficult to duplicate

Mist is permanently sculpted in the cave of the Mysterious Mist in a Stone, an artwork that cannot be replicated

From its external appearance, one can see that “Mysterious Mist Inside a Stone” is an ordinary greenish rock that is a few feet long. However, the inside of it is a totally different world. Its interior contains layer upon layer of what appears to be peaks and hills, forming a beautiful crisscrossing network. Its scenes seem to change endlessly, giving it a profoundly mystical quality. In some parts of the stone’s interior, there is mist as exquisite as chiffon, while in other parts the mist is so thick it covers whatever is behind it. In the latter case, a lamplight that penetrates mist must be shone into the stone to view the background scenes. One can see mist circling upward.

Mysterious Boulder with Mist

Right beside the Mysterious Mist Inside a Stone is another sculpture also has mist inside. It is called Mysterious Boulder with Mist. There are two grottoes inside the boulder, each of which contains its own scenery. When you look inside the right grotto, you will see thick mist enveloping everything. The structure of the carved scenery inside this hole is vague, since it cannot be clearly seen through the mist. You are left with the impression that the mist is a few dozen yards deep inside the hole when it is actually only three or four feet deep. When you look inside the left grotto, you will see that there is no mist at all. You will clearly see the structure of the carved scenery inside this hole. The material used to carve those two grottoes was the same, the colors applied to both of them were the same, and their depth is the same. The carving skills and inner-realization of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III caused this mysterious phenomenon of one side containing thick, enveloping mist and the other side containing no mist at all.

Sculptors throughout history have been able to produce material forms or images through sculpting. However, no one has been able to produce through sculpting something as insubstantial and formless as fog or mist. Nonetheless, there are sculptures of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III that combine both material form and mist.

While I was fascinated by those beautiful artworks, I seem to hear the works say, “I’m born on this earth in such a beautiful and exquisite way. Who or what kind of artist gave birth to me? I could not have been given life by a mundane person. “

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s Yun sculptures can truly be called peerless, priceless treasures. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was able to create these treasures based upon his high state of realization, profound and extensive knowledge, as well as his penetration of the laws that underlie the birth, growth, and change of all things in the universe.

Chinese Plum Blossom Paintings

Chinese Plum Blossom Paintings

One of the most beloved flowers in China, the plum blossoms (méi-huā, 梅花) have been frequently depicted in Chinese painting and poetry for centuries. The Chinese see its blossoms as both a symbol of winter as well as a harbinger of spring. It is precisely for this reason that the blossoms are so beloved, as they bloom most vibrantly amidst the winter snow, after most other plants have shed their leaves, and before other flowers appear. They are seen as an example of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity. Though neither the plum tree nor its blossoms are very striking, they manage to exude an otherworldly exquisiteness and beautiful elegance. The demeanor and character of the plum tree thereby serves as a metaphor for inner beauty and humble display under adverse conditions. Because they blossom in winter, the plum blossom is a member of the “Three Friends of Winter (歲寒三友)”, along with the pine and the bamboo. The plum blossom is also a member of the “Four Gentlemen (四君子)” in Chinese art (the others being orchid, bamboo, and chrysanthemum), symbolizing nobility. In China, there are over 300 recorded cultivars of mei, which can be broadly divided by color into white, pink, red, purple, and light green types.

When we look through all of the ancient and modern books on plum blossom paintings, it is not difficult to discover that all of the famous master plum blossom painters had extensive knowledge, deep understanding of ancient and their own contemporary times, and immense talents. No artist in history can be found who lacked virtue and learning and still was capable of painting highly exquisite plum blossom paintings. The plum blossom paintings of ancient artists such as Mian Wang and Dongxin Jin and the modern artist Changshuo Wu are splendid works based upon the profound knowledge and virtue of their creators.

Mian Wang ( 1287-1359 ) : Early Spring at South Corner of Garden
Artist: Dongxin Jin (1687 – 1764)
Artist: Changshuo Wu (1844 – 1927)

As a contemporary artist, the Pop of Buddhist, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has also painted dozens of masterpieces of plum blossom compositions. All in the book entitled Collected Plum Blossom Paintings, Calligraphy, Poems, and Songs. Wielding the brush with great facility, His Holiness creates paintings that are completely devoid of mundane garishness, have the exquisite look of ancient bronze and stone inscriptions, and are imbued with a scholarly air. His Holiness’s painting skills have surpassed the ordinary and reached the consummate mastery of a holy being. Below are several art works from the book. Some of the paintings are in the exhibition of The International Art Museum of America.

Small Portion of a Plum Grove

Yellow plum blossoms bloom in winter and are generally used during Chinese New Year celebrations as a symbol of great auspiciousness. The painting expresses beauty of a real plum blossom grove.

Drunk in a Green Garden

The turquoise plum blossom is a rare species of plum blossom. These elegant, sublime flowers have a strong resistance to coldness and a scent that is quite fresh and fragrant. This painting has a vigorous and firm style yet maintains great simplicity. The brushwork is bold, vigorous, and completely unconstrained. Large, dancing strokes of a casual hand and free mind bring to form branches and twigs.

Plum Fragrance in the Holy Realm

The brushwork, casually applied, was accomplished with an unfettered hand and detached mind, free of the slightest artificiality. It is a seemingly ever-changing work. Its charm, tone, transitions, and depictions represent the highest level of Eastern ink-and-wash paintings. A transparent layer of lighter ink on top of darker ink is clearly visible, imbuing the painting with a pure and fragrant air and providing the viewer with a feeling of comfort and ease.

Winter Powder

A most elegant and valued plum flower called ‘Dong Fen” (winter powder). It is widely known to be the king of whiter plum blossoms. A strong contrast is presented by the graceful dense ink that was used to paint the tree trunk and the whiting used to form the flowers. The spatial effect of fairness adds to the charm of the picture, showing an awareness of both emptiness and form. A very special aspect of this painting is that the artist did not apply powerful, bold strokes of uneven contour and content. Rather, ink was applied through a gradual moistening process, manifesting the strong talent of the artist.

Mist, Clouds, and Autumnal Color

Artist: H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III 

Mist, Clouds, and Autumnal Color – A Splash-ink Painting

I love all four seasons, but Autumn is my favorite. Autumn is an artist, painting the world in vibrant hues of red and gold. The sunshine is warm and soft, and the sweet joy of the harvest season fills the air. And to top it all off, the weather is just about perfect. There is truly no better time to just sit down and take in the beauty of nature.

Many artists aspire to capture this beauty in brush and ink, to keep a souvenir of Fall’s charm. When I saw the painting Qiu She Yan Yun (Mist, Clouds, and Autumnal Color) for the first time, I felt as if I had melted into the distinct autumnal colors and mist.

“Mist, Clouds, and Autumnal Color” is a splash-color painting that conveys a very strong sense of flowing watery ink and colors. An air of power and grandeur expressed through clouds that seem to swallow mountains and waters pervades the entire painting. The natural captivating charm of this scene is similar to the charm of a scene on the ground after a long, flowing river has just rolled by. This setting is embellished with red maple leaves and houses amid autumnal, cloudy mountains, presenting a wonderful image distinctly characteristic of fall.

When carefully examining the watery ink that produced such charm, one can see beautiful areas that are themselves paintings within a painting and details that are hidden within rough brushwork. Even within small areas are subtle variations of darkness and light, of the surreal and the real, all the while embodying splendid charm.

The artist highly preserves traditional painting skills, large-scale splash-ink technique, freehand brush work and fine brush stroke. Very tiny signs of charm can be seen amid this large-scale splash-ink painting. Soaring charm and exceptional beauty are words that aptly describe this art work.

This painting is in permanent collection of The International Art Museum of America located in downtown San Francisco.

Supernatural Abstract Colors: Oil and Acrylic Paintings by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

Supernatural Abstract Colors: Oil and Acrylic Paintings by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

It is precisely due to his extraordinary talent, exceptional wisdom, sublime morality, and extensive vision that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is able to make one after another world-shocking achievement in art. Here, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III employs his supernatural abstract colors to introduce us once more to a new world of art that is beautiful, mysterious, and soul-inspiring. This truly is not just some fancy talk, for as soon as you set your eyes on these oil and acrylic paintings, you will find the bright and dazzling colors leaping and dancing, vigorous like billows sluicing over thousands of miles, yet stored up into wonders at the fine tip of a brush. Gentle yet resolute, they freely transcend worldliness. Various colors are mixed ingeniously and beautifully, distilling beauty from their mutual nourishment. One could say they present a state of superb craftsmanship excelling in nature, and of form becoming flexible and elusive. Words cannot describe such harmonious, refined, and soothing artistic enjoyment.

Different Tone

Supernatural abstract color is a perfect world composed of colors. It does not have any concrete worldly form but uses only colors to form shapes and express feelings. Color is its shape and theme, and it blends into touching charm. These colors, under H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s hand, suddenly converge into unparalleled, marvelous, and bright magic, expressing the vivid spirit of a flowery scene or the vigor of the roaring sea. Yet, they can be ever so exact when their meaning is revealed through the tip of a brush. The fine details are often revealed among rough strokes, and their charm is naturally displayed. These works of art are fused with the essence of the universe, Nature, and the earth.

The art of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has already cast off the bondage of the common world. Its form and meaning are both like a golden dragon breaking away from the earth’s crust and soaring in the azure sky above the blue sea, free at will, unbridled and unrestrained, all worldly dust whisked away, ever-changing, and beautiful beyond compare! In front of these soul-inspiring rare treasures of art, we admire the exceptional artistry that flows from the boundless heart of the Buddha. We absorb the beauty that transcends all confinements of reality, the beauty created from His use of ever-changing colors for the appreciation of mankind.

It is no surprise that these amazingly beautiful pieces are the creations of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The supernatural abstract color is just the crystallization of His various astonishing talents and the outflow of His limitless artistic wisdom. He truly deserves to be called a master artist the likes of which have never been seen in history.

These four extremely charming paintings below are in permanent exhibition of The International Art Museum of America located at downtown San Francisco.

Unique Lotuses in Ink – By Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang

Unique Lotuses in Ink – By Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang

This painting’s arrangement is classically simple and straightforward. The brushwork conveys both simplicity and adeptness. Each lotus stem was painted with just one stroke from top to bottom. The important fact is that the artist dared to adopt an extremely plain and uncreative artistic conception, yet remarkably powerful, seasoned painting skills casually applied are reflected deep within this
painting. This work also reveals the artist’s inner power based on her broadmindedness. Even more wonderful is the fact that no touchups whatsoever were added to the lotus stems to enhance their charm. Painting skills alone were relied upon to capture both the spirit and form of the stems,resulting in a very enuine-looking image. The seedpod, flower, and leaves are in complete concert with one
another. The style is vivacious, elegant, free of conventionality, and wonderfully spellbinding.

Someone who does not believe in the difficulty of painting a lotus stem with just one stroke should try it himself. He will then know how very difficult it is. A work of this quality can only be successfully created by an artist who has reached great heights in painting and whose artistry is devoid of any trace of vulgarity. This is a precious painting in which the extraordinary can be seen within the seemingly ordinary. It is no wonder that Yu Hua Shouzhi Wang was praised by experts as “the unmatched master of lotus flower paintings from ancient times to now” when her artwork was exhibited in the United States Capitol.

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is the Lifetime Honorary Chairwoman of the International Art Museum of America. The museum has a dedicated gallery exhibiting her artworks. Her paintings encompass a broad range of styles and subject matters, including landscapes, animals, flowers, birds, and so forth, all of which have reached the summit of world class artistic excellence. Her artistic achievement has reached perfection at the summit of the “ten ultimate artistries.”

Professor Wang’s works have been exhibited and widely acclaimed in the United States, China, Asia, and Europe. In 2008, the United States Congress held an exhibition of the professor’s works, calling her art a “treasure of the world.” The U.S. Congressional Record chronicled the recognition that “her lotus flower paintings are unsurpassed and are extremely valuable.” Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang has also been critically acclaimed by news media that “she fuses vivacity, power, color, scholarly essence, quintessence of stone and bronze inscriptions, spirituality, erudition, and morality into oneness in her art. She is the foremost artist in the world.”

Professor Wang is a person of humility and noble morality. She is modest, unassuming, beneficent and genial. The characteristics of an artist’s paintings essentially reflect the character of the painter.

Xi Zhen Yi Shou – A Chinese Painting of Three Pandas

A Chinese Painting of Three Pandas

Pandas are a precious and rare animal, and thus are the emblem of the World Society for the Protection of Animals. Pandas are chubby, cute and charmingly naive, and their eyes seem to communicate a slight sadness. How can one not love these real-life teddy bears?

Many years ago, I visited the Panda Reserve area in SiChuan, China. There, I got the chance to see and touch these fluffy beasts up close(for a fee, of course)! So I wore a disposable cloth and hugged the panda. It was so warm and soft! Truly, an unforgettable experience. I was even given a piece of bamboo to taste. Very tender and juicy. Unfortunately, the panda though I was stealing its food, and to avoid hurting its feelings I let it eat the rest. This is without a doubt my go to destination after the pandemic!

All over the world, there are many paintings of pandas. One time, I saw a chinese painting of Pandas at International Art Museum of America located at downtown San Francisco. The painting reminds me the soft, warm, fury touching feeling of the huge with the Panda. The three pandas look as if they were created by a magical heavenly brush. There is an extremely vivacious appeal, a deeply touching liveliness to these pandas.Pervading such paintings is an air of purity, cleanliness, and hopefulness. The three pandas in this painting all have innocent expressions and look vividly real. The scattered perspective technique of Chinese paintings was combined with the three-dimensional perspective technique of oil paintings. The colors are richly charming, and the layout is exquisite. Empty space and color are mutually complimentary in a fascinating way.
The pandas and the surrounding scene blend into one harmonious image. These lifelike pandas painted in fine brushwork with meticulous attention to detail contrast perfectly with the surrounding scene painted in freehand brushwork. The painting style is plain, vigorous and mature. There is order within the seeming disorder and interesting juxtaposition between the real and the abstract. The achievement of using complimentary bold and delicate strokes in one painting, as H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha III does, sets His artistry apart from conventional artistry.

Inspiring Art Creation and Promoting Community Culture Activities

Mission of The International Art Museum of American

Established in October 2011, The International Art Museum of America(IAMA) is a charming and vibrant gallery, full of both exotic and familiar paintings, portraits, and sculptures. Its diverse collection of artwork and education programs promotes art appreciation, culture exchange, and communication between artists and guests. With these qualities, the IAMA hopes to nurture an important spiritual goal: that all people may have a deeper understanding of each other.

Tengergold Gallery

Tendergold Gallery was first introduced by IAMA in early 2018.  The name pays homage to our ever-so-funky neighboring Tenderloin District. While it could undeniably be seen as dark and gritty, it also hosted some of San Francisco’s most exciting underground art scenes and nightlife. At Tendergold celebrated this by bringing art to the light of day from emerging artists, both internationally and from the Bay Area.  Once at this room, a young Syria refugee artist, who live in Greece refugee camp, displayed her paintings, and the income from auction of the drawing was donated to Syria refugee camp. Tendergold Gallery was closed in early 2022 and replaced by Sip Art.

Lightspace Gallery

Besides collecting timeless and world-class art treasures, the  International Art Museum of America is also mindful of contemporary art creations of all forms.  The museum created a special exhibit dedicated to the modern art of our era. The quarterly rotating exhibit called Lightspace was conceived thereafter beginning in September of 2018. We select outstanding artworks to be on exhibit in the Lightspace Gallery, from photography to mixed media, sculpting, and installation art.
