      李玉智曾用名李玉枝、乳名长江,

笔名李玄、玄渊。  祖籍北京,生于

1941年7月1日。少年懞懂时代就立志

要做达芬奇,他一生与画为伴,他的

艺术创作涉及范围极广,连环画、国

画、油画、水彩画、雕塑……是不可多得的艺术全才。

      

       他是家中长子, 初中他就利用给别人画像来补贴家用。初中毕业,以山西省专业第一的成绩考上中央美院附中,因家庭坚决反对未能成行。

  

     1967年,经过自身努力他去了太原日报工作,他的才华得到充分展示。一时间,几乎每天的报纸上都刊登着他的作品,有连环画、漫画、雕塑、以及各种宣传海报。上班不久他参加几次大型政治宣传活动,其中有一组表现工人阶级的群塑,成为整个活动中最亮眼的部分,至今还保留着当时照片。

     

      随后几年随着社会发展、改革开放,身边的人经商、下海的人越来越多。他没什么犹豫就彻底辞掉了公职,做起了装潢,钱也很快挣到不少,有了物质上的保障,他更加勤奋地埋头作画,唯如此才能安顿那颗高贵敏感孤独的心灵。

      1990年李玄先生开创了自己的画室,潜心研究中国传统与现代绘画,完成了大量的风格独特的画作,他师从吴冠中,吸取赵无极先生抽象的表现手法,xing

     

      他一生都在探究西洋画和中国画的完美融合,敢于在绘画意念和色彩美学上大胆突破,其色彩层次和光的处理变换莫测,在他晚年形成了独树一帜的绘画风格,创作了很多风格独特的山水和人物画,他的作品既有东方画笔技巧的柔和及透明感,又有西方鲜明大胆的色彩运用,他崇尚吴冠中大师提出的“笔墨等于零”。他用毕生的精力和全部的智慧通过画笔来表达着他的思想和感情。纵观他这一生,是用灵魂创作艺术作品的过程,直到最后一刻倒在他的画室,享年70岁。

   

     我们整理了他的大量画作、手稿、文字、诗词。那是一个巨大的艺术宝库。未来我们将会陆续通过展览、画册、媒体等各种形式展示他一生的心血。
