Mr. Zhang Lichen is the director of the Research and Creation Center of the Rongbaozhai Academy of Painting. His paintings are mostly based on melons, fruits, vegetables, flowers and birds. From the selection of materials to how to depict the subject matter, they are quite different from the general flower and bird painters. It can blend natural feelings and homesickness into a unique artistic aesthetic world.

He (old nursery) does not pursue that kind of masculine beauty, nor does he appreciate the lonely and sad desolate state, neither the elegant manner of the writer for no reason, nor the feeling of being vulgar. His paintings are like his own, advocating the simple and neutral way. Just as Sikong Tu of Tang Dynasty pointed out in his famous poems, the meanings of "dilution", "elegance", "nature" and "singularity" are embodied in his works. If we look at it with ordinary heart, meticulous heart and quiet mind, it is not difficult to enter the aesthetic realm of plain, elegant and profound meditation in the garden of vegetable in the old nursery. We also realize his feelings and joy of "falling flowers without words, people are as indifferent as chrysanthemum" and "plain ink, subtle opportunity".

Wen has entered the sea of commerce, in recent years to pick up the brush. He went back and forth with Yu, visiting Mei in the south at about the same time, placing his affection between the dark fragrance and the sparse shadows. See its wandering in the wild Li vegetable garden. There is a saying: "Looking at the things in the garden, I remember the things in my childhood. I would like to take the fresh green things in the garden as my life's research and painting. Although things are small, they have the fresh air of mountains and rivers. They are cheap, but they are also in line with the people's mouths. As a result, the paintings overlap and dye more melons, fruits and vegetables. Simple pen, elegant ink, unique style, all in the law. The viewer is at the bottom of the vegetable garden. Yu Xiangdao gave the title of "old nursery".
