Wanjunchi (Appreciation of Calligraphy and Painting, Editor-in-Chief of Zanzhen Magazine): Wang Tao's heroic complex, poetry temperament, sense of distress and creative mentality. From his works, we can chew humour and acrimony. Taste elegant, smart, and feel the faith, conscience. He is good at using and changeable, but also aesthetic and realistic.
Fang Zengxian (Vice Chairman of Shanghai Artists Association): Wang Tao's success lies in "not the result of writing practice, but the result of thinking".
Ye Shaoyu (Vice Chairman of China Artists Association): Zhuangzhou Dream Butterfly, an Anhui painter, has an unusual conception and intention.
Li Zhenjian (Professor of Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts): Painter Wang Tao has always been in love with the "image outside the image" of the verve realm. Its open-minded character, accompanied by bold and unconstrained style, is full of it, which makes its works exudes a magnificent and magnificent spirit. Full of vigorous spirit of the times and distinct and strong Eastern strength.
Liu Boshu (former president of the Chinese Academy of Painting and vice-chairman of the Chinese Association of Fine Arts): Yunlong is flying away, and Tianma is free. Mr. Wang Tao is a rare talent in the field of Chinese painting. His works are elegant, elegant and fresh. His painting style is absolutely vulgar, simple and elegant. He has a good blend of spirit, form, spirit and spirit.
Wu Yang (Beijing Writer): Wang Tao leads his team of painters in obscurity and is willing to be poor. In the impetuous shallow trend of the times, adhere to the root of local culture, adhere to the fresh and pure painting style, do not follow the trend, do not compare, do not discourage.

Some passion of Western artists arouses the true feelings that have been sleeping in his heart for a long time and melts into his Oriental pen and ink lines.
Jia Dejiang (President and Editor-in-Chief of Beijing Arts and Crafts Publishing House): Wang Tao is not only an open-minded artist, but also a far-sighted thinker. He will further cultivate his magnificent integrity in the artistic dialogue he loves. We should further turn pen and ink into personality and personality into pen and ink, and create the future of Chinese freehand brushwork figures in the spirit of modern people.
Xu Encun (Editor-in-Chief of China Art Magazine): In recent years, Wang Tao's thoughts have been deepening, his pen and ink have been maturing and his artistic realm has been improving. The figure paintings, no matter from ancient to modern times, are full of rich cultural flavor. Perhaps the painter loves his native land too much. He always creates a picture of the spiritual world with happy melody, bright color and full ink.
Cao Yulin (editor-in-chief and deputy editor of Zhenfeng magazine): As an important representative of freehand figure painting, Wang Tao's figure painting has made many achievements. It is a new progress and harvest in contemporary figure painting creation that it integrates foundry tradition, restores the freehand spirit and high-quality, bold spirit.
Ouyang Zhongshi (Professor of Capital Normal University): "Green sandalwood is colorful, see three lights in the jade edition." —— Geng Wushu presents Wang Tao.
Since Liang Kai in the Southern Song Dynasty, freehand figure painting has not been developed by leaps and bounds, unlike landscape painting and flower-and-bird painting, it has been developing from the old to the new, reaching the peak of art. This is due to the worship of the world at that time, landscape, flowers and birds are more suitable for literati to express their inner demands; second, because the social environment and market at that time did not have a great demand for freehand figure painting, resulting in the decline of freehand figure painting. After the founding of New China, because of the advocacy of thematic creation, figure painting has received renewed attention. Xu Beihong, Jiang Zhaohe and others have introduced Western sketch into the sketch and creation of figure painting, which has improved the shape of figure painting. On this basis, the combination of sketch and ink language has been explored, and freehand figure painting has given a new look.
