I have known Jincheng for many years. At that time, I was still working at the Central Academy of Fine Arts. When the first animation committee of the Chinese Artists Association was established, I was the secretary general and he was the deputy secretary. Jincheng is a very courageous and persevering person, who has been committed to promoting the development of China's animation industry for a long time. As early as the 1980s, he became famous after publishing the comic book "Ming Girl" in the "Comic", but instead of focusing on his personal creation, he resolutely turned around and devoted himself to promoting the disadvantaged at the time. For the development of his comic career, he successively founded "Manyou", "Comic World", "Comic SHOW" and "Comic BAR!" "", "Xin Lei" and other animation and literary periodicals, and initiated the creation of the "Golden Dragon Award" to discover and launch batches of new local comics. Actively explore the connotation of the "Chinese School" of animation and the "road to the future", and promote Chinese animation to achieve a culturally conscious attitude and stand tall in the world of animation. In recent years, he has once again "retired from the rapids", returning from an industry promoter to artistic creation.
Jincheng's artistic experience is not only special, but also clear. The former has a different legendary color due to multiple identity conversions, while the latter has clues to the same line in the specific content and form of his art works.
From an early masterpiece, it describes a love story of a pair of blind people who are physically disabled and supports each other, and a comic strip "Ming Girl" praising the self-improvement of the working people, to the literati depicting Liang Sicheng and Lin Huiyin after years of regaining their brushes. Yashi, the poignant and moving love story "April on Earth", and then to the latest creation, "Marx and Jenny", which deeply analyzes the tender love story in the world of great men.
Obviously, Jincheng's years of accumulation and extensive travel, especially in recent years, traveled to European places of interest and extensive experience in art masterpieces, gave him his own experience in the exploration of the visual image conversion of traditional literary narratives. From the works, we can not only feel his solid modeling foundation, but also his hearty and hearty traditional brushwork skills. He has not only the color creation of Western realism, but also the line skills of "Cao Yi Chushui". It benefits from his long-term accumulation of sketching skills and his understanding and use of lines when creating comics in his early years. In the composition and layout of the picture, it is also different from painters with a traditional academic background. The picture reveals a calm and unobtrusive atmosphere, with the "simple characteristics of Zen and pure dual cultivation", which is unforgettable.
I sincerely hope that Jincheng will climb to the next level on the road of artistic exploration in the future!

Jincheng has been in the arts for 40 years, the first art exhibition
On November 28, 2018, the "New Era of Animation-Guangzhou Animation Art 40 Years Achievement Exhibition" co-sponsored by the Guangzhou Municipal Party Committee Propaganda Department and Guangzhou Federation of Literary and Art Circles will officially open at the Guangzhou Art Museum, and the "Golden City Art Works Exhibition" will be held at the same time. Through the comprehensive display of Jincheng's 40 years of artistic achievements, taste the unique charm of his works and the influence of the times, and feel the glorious glory of Guangzhou's art in the 40 years of reform and opening up.
With the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up, the animation master Jincheng has also gone through 40 years of artistic history. Its history of struggle in the field of animation can be said to be a microcosm of the history of animation in Guangzhou.
As an artist who grew up with the reform and opening up, Jin Cheng started from comics and became famous in the painting circles with the "Ming Girl" published in "Comic Pictorial". After that, he devoted himself to animation art creation and industrial operation, founded the most well-known magazine "Manyou", founded the world's first "Chinese Animation Golden Dragon Award" that combines manga and animation, created a new concept of "animation", and promoted Apart from the development of animation art and industry, Jincheng has also achieved its own artistic accomplishment. The narrative group painting "April on the Earth" created in 2014, received wide attention from all walks of life as soon as it was launched. It was selected for the 12th National Art Exhibition and participated in overseas exhibitions more than ten times, bringing a breath of fresh air to the painting world. When commenting on this work, Lu Yushun, the executive vice president of the National Academy of Painting, wrote: "The work has vivid charm and ingenious picture conception. The work portrays the role of the legendary and talented woman Lin Huiyin in the Republic of China. The author continues to capture those who can express the plot and reflect the heart. In addition to the external elements of the world, the body language and emotional changes of the characters are deliberately strengthened. Through the eyes of the characters' souls, we can appreciate the protagonist’s rich but not exaggerated, introverted but full of sentimental contradictory character, as if we could smell that. The breathing and pulsation of young people in this era have made paintings endless and infinite."
This exhibition brings together more than 100 works such as Jincheng comics, comics, ink and ceramics. It spans 40 years. It is the first solo exhibition of Jincheng's artistic career. It focuses on displaying the fine parts of the author's large number of creations, and his artistic propositions and performance appeals. The inner thoughts are presented externally, and the audience can perceive the artist’s ever-changing exploration process and the increasingly mature artistic realm through the four sections of "Lianyue Lianhuan", "Danqing Fanghua", "Jiguang Katayu", and "Brush and Ink Travel". .
During the exhibition, the "Golden City Art Works Seminar" will also be held.
